We are pleased to announce that our colleague and CEPR member, Tomáš Havránek, was appointed to the Evaluation Panel for the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grants in 2020, becoming the first Czech representative in the field of economics and finance in this panel ever. He is also the youngest ever representative of the Czech Republic in the Advanced Grants category across all sciences.
ERC Advanced Grants, which may be awarded up to € 2.5 million for a period of 5 years, are the most prestigious research grants in Europe.
The evaluations take 6 months and the final decisions take two full weeks of panel meetings. Panel members are selected by the ERC from all around the world, based on their scientific reputation. The detailed selection criteria can be found here.
Apart from Tomáš Havránek, there were for example Professor Bo Honoré (Princeton), Professor Gianmarco Ottaviano (Bocconi) and Professor David Dorn (Zurich) among the internationally recognized scholars in the Evaluation Panel for Economics and Finance. The full list of panelists can be found here.
Congratulations on this prestigious role and a valuable experience!
