Prof. Mlčoch was awarded the CES Prize for long-term contribution to the development of Czech economic learning
Congratulations to Professor Lubomír Mlčoch, for becoming a laureate of this year’s
CES Prize for long-term contribution to the development of Czech economic learning.
This prize is awarded by the Czech Economic Society (CES) to the outstanding representatives of the Czech economic community for long-term contribution to the development of Czech economic learning. Prof. Ing. Lubomír Mlčoch, CSc. is the eighth winner of this prize.
This year’s prize is awarded for long-term and versatile support to the development of the economy in a scientific way in the Czech Republic, especially in the 1990s, when his activities significantly contributed to the building of the newly founded Faculty of Social Sciences of Charles University, where he was active as a Dean between 1993–2003, as well as of our Institute of Economic Studies (including the establishment of the Department of Institutional Economics), where he was a long- term staff member and Professor Emeritus.
Prof. Lubomír Mlčoch is one of the most prominent Czech economists of recent generations.
The research of Prof. Mlčoch has contributed to a better understanding of the (not) working of the socialist economy in terms of microeconomy and institutional economy.
The prize will be ceremoniously handed over to Prof. Mlčoch at the XI Binary Conference of CES that was moved to May 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic restrictions.
More about prof. Mlčoch, his research and the prize itself can be found in the official CES press release.
