The INOMICS Handbook
The 2020 INOMICS Awards
Now in their fourth year, the prestigious INOMICS Awards recognise the top career and study opportunities offered by INOMICS customers in 2019. Keeping with tradition, we divided the awards into categories to showcase exactly which opportunities were of greatest interest to INOMICS users. They include: Top Employers, Top Training Courses, Top Places to do a Master’s, Top Places to do a PhD, Top Conference Organizers and Top Summer School Organizers.
Acknowledging the fierceness of competition we awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes in each category, toagether with a shortlist of institutions worthy of recognition. To reach this list, we combined the total interest generated by each opportunity, together with the attractiveness of the opportunity as defined by the percentage of those viewing it who were interested enough to enquire further. As such, the Awards are a reflection of the interests and ambitions of INOMICS users.
Across the categories nominees included: Ludwig Maximilians University; Barcelona Graduate School of Economics; EcoMod School of Modeling and Data Science; School of Economics, University of Surrey; Economics School of Louvain; Guido Carli University of Rome; Paris School of Economics; University of St. Gallen; and the Erasmus School of Economics at University Rotterdam. All are elite institutions and worthy winners. However, to find out who actually took home the gongs, download this year's Handbook here. In addition to the Awards, it also contains discussions on tax reform, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the sexism latent in our economies. It's a bumper issue and not to be missed.

- Improving Muslim Lives
The Lives and Livelihoods Fund
Four years ago, the world adopted an ambitious set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) designed ‘to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030’. Despite rising life expectancy and the eradication of many endemic diseases, more than 400 million people in the member states of the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) still live in absolute poverty, subsisting on less than US$1.90 per day. It is, perhaps, these countries that face the greatest challenges in fulfilling the SDGs.
