Young Economists’ Essay Awards

The EARIE Conference is aiming to encourage and foster young researchers in Industrial Economics. The Young Economists’ Essay Awards (YEEA) support that aim by recognizing innovative, impressive work that is likely to have an impact.

The criteria for the YEEA are that the author (or all authors of a multiple-authored paper) must be under 35 years old and have completed his or her PhD less than five years ago. Each year one of the YEEAs recognises work with a policy contribution and is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski. This year is the 14th time that EARIE bestows this award in Paul Geroski’s memory.

This year’s winners are (in alphabetical order):
