EARIE Awards (YEEAs)


On the occasion of the EARIE Annual Conference, a number of special awards known as the Young Economists' Essay Awards (YEEAs) are chosen by a Selection Committee and presented to young economists who submitted exceptionally innovative and high-quality papers for discussion at the conference. YEEA prizes may be funded by various sponsors, as well as by the conference organisers and EARIE. As of 2006, one of the YEEAs is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski for the paper that makes the most significant policy contribution. As of 2013, Elsevier is the main sponsor of the EARIE YEEAs.

To be eligible for a YEEA, authors must be (a) 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 the criteria (a) and (b).
