About the Awards


The main purpose of the Young Economists' Essay Awards (YEEAs) is to encourage young researchers to participate in the EARIE Annual Conference.

The awards, bestowed annually, are meant for 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 the criteria (a) and (b).

Each year, one of the YEEAs is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski. This dedication is given to the paper that makes the most significant policy contribution. This year will be the 11th time that EARIE bestows this award in Paul Geroski’s memory.

If you fulfill the above criteria and you would like to submit your paper for the EARIE 2016 YEEAs, please indicate this in the corresponding checkbox on the EARIE 2016 paper submission form.

The annual EARIE YEEAs are sponsored by Elsevier, for which EARIE is very grateful.
