Call for papers for the 2018 Ieke van den Burg Prize for Research on Systemic Risk

The ESRB awards an annual prize for outstanding research on systemic risk by young scholars. The prize is awarded in memory of Ieke van den Burg, who was a member of the inaugural Advisory Scientific Committee (ASC) from 2011 to 2014 and a member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2009. Ms van den Burg was dedicated to the notion that finance should serve society and this prize is administered in that spirit.

Today, the ESRB is launching the call for papers for the 2018 Ieke van den Burg Prize. As in previous years, the ESRB is seeking completed papers related to the ESRB’s mission of preventing and mitigating systemic risks to financial stability. Applicants must be under 35 years old on 31 December 2017. The author(s) of the winning paper will receive €5,000 to support their research activities and will be expected to present their research at the ESRB Annual Conference.

The deadline for applications is 31 March 2018, midnight CET.

Further information is provided in the call for papers, issued together with this press release.
