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 award has been granted annually since 2003.
In 2023, the winner of the research award is Artemi Beljakov of Tallinn University of Technology for his Master’s thesis "Education-job mismatch - implications for individual earnings in Estonia". The research presents new and in-depth information on how many workers in Estonia have a level of education that does not match the job requirements and how this affects their earnings.
