Since 2009, Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei annually confers the FEEM Award, a prize organized jointly with the European Economic Association (EEA) aimed at rewarding the best research by young economists.
The FEEM Award aims to reward new ideas addressing key economic issues at the European and global scale.
The award is given to the authors of the three best papers presented by young economists at the annual congress of the EEA. Both theoretical and empirical papers will be considered without any restriction of topics. Eligible candidates should be less than thirty years of age and no more than three years past a PhD defence.
There is a monetary reward of 5,000 euros for each winning paper.
The Selection Committee comprises the Congress Chair, one member chosen by the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei and one member chosen by the EEA Executive Committee.
