The Generation €uro Students' Award
Register by 1st Dec 2019
The Generation €uro Students' Award is a leading economics competition for transition and 5th year students. It is run by the Central Bank of Ireland in conjunction with the European Central Bank (ECB) and is conducted simultaneously by other national central banks in the euro area.
They are searching for Ireland’s brightest young economists to enact the role of the European Central Bank’s Governing Council, perform their own analysis of the economy and set what they believe is an appropriate interest rate for the euro area.
Students enter the competition in teams of three to five, with a nominated teacher acting as mentor. Participants are tested over three different rounds – an online quiz, a written analysis and a presentation.
