The objective of this programme of research chairs in Economics is to attract outstanding, world-class researchers to the Department of Economics of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.
In order to support the research activity in Economics and to provide appropriate incentives, the Institute of Economics established in 2008 a Programme of research prizes for the members of the Institute whose research produces publications in the best international economic journals. The Programme's budget is 1.250.000 euros, and its sources are the revenues of overhead costs of the Institute's research grants. The programme is expected to be operative for over a decade, although in reality it will remain active until its budget is exhausted.
