Jean-Jacques Laffont Prize

The Jean-Jacques Laffont Prize awarded to a renowned international economist

 


Every year, Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) organises the Jean-Jacques Laffont Prize which is awarded to a renowned international economist whose research, in the spirit of the work undertaken by Professor Jean-Jacques Laffont, combines both the theoretical and the empirical. The prize winner presents his or her work at a public lecture, in partnership with the city hall "Mairie de Toulouse".
