Young Economists’ Essay Awards

On the occasion of the EARIE Annual Conference, a number of best paper prizes known as the Young Economists' Essay Awards (YEEAs) are chosen by a Selection Committee (headed by that year's EARIE Scientific Committee Chair) and awarded to young economists who present exceptionally innovative and high-quality papers at the conference. As of 2006, one of the YEEAs is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski – for the paper that makes the most significant policy contribution. (NOTE: In 2020 the conference was a limited edition so no awards were distributed.)

The awards are aimed at exceptionally innovative and high-level papers written by researchers who: (a) are under the age of 35 and (b) have completed their PhD less than 5 years ago. For papers with multiple authors, each author should satisfy both criteria (a) and (b). Each year, the YEEA for the paper that makes the most significant policy contribution is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski (As of 2013, Elsevier has kindly sponsored the YEEA monetary prizes, for which EARIE is very grateful.)

This year’s winners will be announced during the Dinner at Vienna Town Hall. We recommend potential candidates to attend the event.
