August 27, 2010
Congratulations to Benjamin Elsner (PhD Student) who has been selected for a FEEM award at the Annual Congress of the European Economic Association for his paper "Does Emigration Benefit The Stayers? The Eu Enlargement As A Natural Experiment. Evidence From Lithuani".
There are just three FEEM prizes at the EEA congress - there were 700 applicants, so it is a huge honour for Ben. The FEEM award is open to economists under 30 and no more than 3 years from completing the PHD; - so Ben was competing with economists much further along in their careers.
