In addition, the winners of the competition will be invited to a European event organised by the ECB, bringing together the winners of other national Generation €uro competitions organised by the national central banks of the euro area.
For all participants, the competition represents a unique opportunity to gain a better understanding of the role of central banks and thus a better overview of how the economy works. This knowledge can be useful for the rest of their academic career.
The competition also aims to reinforce skills such as teamwork, the ability to carry out research independently, to write a contribution according to precise rules and to make an oral presentation to a jury of experts.
