Prizes in Monetary Economics and Finance Academic Workshop

Published on 21 May 2024

18 June 2024 - 10:30

Since 2007, the Banque de France and TSE have worked together to support and strengthen excellence in economic research in France and make key contributions to international economic debate and expertise. To do so, in 2012, the Banque de France and the Toulouse School of Economics launched a series of Prizes in Monetary Economics and Finance.


These prizes, granted every two years, distinguish junior and senior academic researchers who have developed central concepts to improve our understanding of monetary economics and finance. The aim of the prizes is to foster conceptual progress that will eventually allow the design and implementation of improved policies by central banks.

The conference will take place in person.
