Mirjam van Praag has been invited to become a Research Fellow in the Industrial Organization Programme of the Centre for Economic Policy Research.
The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) was founded in 1983 to enhance the quality of economic policy-making within Europe and beyond, by creating excellent, policy-relevant economic research, and disseminating it widely to policy influencers in the public and private sectors and civil society.
CEPR is based on a new model of organization, which we call a “thinknet”: a distributed network of economists, who are affiliated with but not employed by CEPR, collaborating through the Centre on a wide range of policy-related research projects and dissemination activities.
Research Fellows are appointed for four-year renewable periods, to maintain selectivity, competition, and a continuous infusion of new people and ideas. The Centre encourages its Research Fellows to be active participants in its work, not merely names on its academic masthead; submitting research for publication and presentation at public dissemination meetings, participating in workshops, seminars and conferences and proposing and directing projects administered by the Centre.
