About the Awards
The EARIE Conference is aiming to encourage and foster young researchers in Industrial Economics, and 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 award are that the author (or all authors of a multiple-authored paper) must be under 35 years old and have completed their PhDs less than 5 years ago. Each year one of the YEEAs recognizes work with a policy contribution and is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski. This year is the 11th time that EARIE bestows this award in Paul Geroski’s memory.
More than 100 submissions were eligible for the award, and were considered by a committee consisting of Gregory Crawford (University of Zurich), Alessandro Gavazza (London School of Economics), Patrick Rey (Toulouse School of Economics), Michelle Sovinsky (University of Mannheim), and John Sutton (London School of Economics).
