Mihhail Bronštein Awards

The Academician Mihhail Bronštein Awards in Economics have been initiated to recognize theoretical developments and their successful applications by Estonian economists.

In 2023, up to two awards will be presented. One award of up to 10 000 (ten thousand) euros will be presented for significant and, as a rule, already applied achievements in economics. One award of up to 5000 (five thousand) euros will be presented for outstanding innovative developments in economics.

Nomination for the awards is open to all researchers and experts working in Estonian research institutions, as well as to researchers and experts who hold Estonian citizenship, an Estonian long-term residence permit or a right of permanent residence but are working outside Estonia.
Research or research cycles submitted for the award must have been published in international peer-reviewed journals or published by recognized scientific publishers or by Estonian universities and research and development institutions as a monograph or as a chapter in a collection in 2020–2022.
