Eesti Pank research award

The Eesti Pank research award dedicated to the memory of Urmas Sepp is intended to promote economic research by young economists in Estonia, recognise outstanding research work, and enhance studies for academic degrees. Urmas Sepp (1956-2002) was the head of the Eesti Pank macroeconomics department and later the economic research department in 1993-2002. The research prize has been awarded annually since 2003.

Eesti Pank will grant the award in two categories in 2024, with one award of 3000 euros for research leading to a PhD thesis or done as part of doctoral studies, and the other of 2000 euros for research leading to a master’s dissertation or done as part of a master’s course.

The competition is open to anyone who is under 40 when the competition is announced and is studying on a master’s or doctoral course accredited by the Estonian Ministry of Education. The competition is also open to anyone who is under 40 and has already received a master’s degree or a doctoral degree from such a course. If groups of researchers enter the competition, all the members of the research group must meet these conditions.
