People of CERGE-EI: Meet Our Alumni

25 January, 2021

David Vávra, our PhD in Economics graduate from 2003, stands behind the CERGE-EI Student Support Fund.

He was the initiator of establishing it so that CERGE-EI alumni can financially support CERGE-EI Master students. Why did he decide to create such a fund? "The ability to attract good talent from the CEE countries is one of CERGE-EI’s strong features. I believe the Fund is necessary in keeping that competitive edge," explains David in the interview.

David Vávra currently holds the position of Managing Partner at OGResearch, a consultancy firm in quantitative economics. Have his study years at CERGE-EI influenced him in his career?
