Egon-Matzner-Award for Socio-Economics
Centre of Public Finance and Infrastructure Policy at Vienna University of Technology

Award Winners | Photos

The Egon-Matzner-Award is presented to young scientists (up to 35 years of age) for their scientific publications and for excellent diploma, master or doctoral theses, in particular in the following thematic fields:
- Socio-economics, heterodox economics,
- Evolutionary economics,
- Institutional economics,
- Public finance and fiscal federalism,
- Infrastructure economics and policy;
Studies are preferred that especially include practical and empirical problems on strong theoretical foundations, go beyond schools of thought and paradigms, and/or present interdisciplinary perspectives.

In 2012, the Egon-Matzner-Award for Socio-Economics has been conferred for the first time on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Centre of Public Finance and Infrastructure Policy at the Vienna University of Technology, and will be awarded henceforth annually.
