Every year the European Central Bank (ECB) invites PhD students in economics and finance to participate in its Young Economist Prize. Finalists are invited to the ECB Forum on Central Banking where they are given the unique opportunity to present their research and engage with policymakers and top academics from around the world. The overall winner is awarded €10,000.
What are the topics for 2023 paper submissions?
The theme of the 2023 ECB Forum on Central Banking is “Macroeconomic stabilisation in a volatile inflation environment”. Accordingly, PhD students are invited to submit papers on this theme, including the following topics:
- monetary policy in the face of multiple supply shocks
- assessing the costs of inflation
- finding the right mix of fiscal and monetary policy in the context of high inflation
- the scope for unconventional monetary policy and forward guidance during policy tightening
- structural changes in the functioning of European and global energy markets, and their implications for the euro area macroeconomy
The selected finalists will have the unique opportunity to display the main findings of their research on the ECB's website and during the Forum, where they will be able to hear from policy makers, top academics and market economists from around the world.
Their papers will be assessed by a jury of top academics and senior ECB staff, taking into account votes to be cast by Forum participants. Please see the prize rules and apply here by February 13 2023
