Nominations 2019

In recognition of the outstanding support that our graduates provide to the CERGE-EI community, the Alumni Awards take place each year. Faculty, students, staff and other CERGE-EI members come together to nominate and vote for an alumnus/alumna who has significantly contributed to the CERGE-EI community over the past year, made a significant work achievement, or simply inspired others.

The nominations that we received from members of the CERGE-EI community are listed below. (Note: two of the nominations could not be listed, as the nominees have not yet graduated. Similarly, one other nomination had to be excluded because the nominee is employed as an EI junior researcher).
