Hicks-Tinbergen Award - Selection Process

The selection committee, composed of the JEEA Editor, EEA Past President and EEA Vice-president, asks all EEA members for nominations. 

The Committee then discusses the nominations put forward by EEA members and makes a shortlist. The JEEA Editors who viewed the paper are often called in to evaluate the nomination.

In Spring of each year in which the award is given, the Committee informs the EEA Executive Committee of their decision and also informs the EEA Executive Committee of how the decision was reached, the motivation, as well as a list of any other candidates that were considered during the last stages of the process as potential winners of the award. 

The winner is announced immediately after the meeting and announcement is posted on EEA website.
