EAEPE invites young scholars to submit their 2024 EAEPE conference paper for the annual EAEPE Herbert Simon Prize. The prize is 500 euros.

The closing date for submissions to the 2024 EAEPE Herbert Simon Prize is June 7th, 2024.

Submissions should be papers that have been submitted to the 2024 EAEPE Conference following the acceptance of an applicant’s abstract. Applicants must attend and present their accepted paper at the 2024 conference. Papers that have not been accepted for presentation at the 2024 EAEPE conference will not be considered.

Eligible applicants are scholars—with accepted abstracts and full papers for the 2024 EAEPE Conference—who are within 3 years of completion of their PhD in 2024 or who do not reach their 35th birthday in 2024.

Co-authored papers are eligible if all co-authors meet the eligibility requirements as above. Each author may submit no more than one paper, single or co-authored, for this prize.

In the case of two or more eligible co-authors, at least one-of the authors should be a paid-up EAEPE member in 2024.

Any member of the EAEPE Council or Trustee of the Foundation for European Economic Development (FEED) serving during 2024 is ineligible to enter, including as a co-author.

A single PDF file of the conference paper, by the eligible author(s), should be sent by 7th June 2024 to the EAEPE Prize Coordinators:

Sending your entry to the wrong email address will result in a delay that may make you miss the deadline. EAEPE will not be held responsible for submissions that are emailed to the wrong address.

The EAEPE Council will judge all the EAEPE prize submissions. The Council reserves the right not to award the prize if the entries are below the required quality. All applicants will be informed, of the outcome of their submission, by 22nd July 2024

Authors can participate in only one EAEPE Prize competition each year.
