In 2012, the Banque de France and TSE launched a series of awards in the fields of monetary economics and finance.
Every two years, a junior and senior prize are awarded to university researchers who develop fundamental concepts to help us understand monetary economics, finance and bank supervision. The awards highlight research that improves the way in which central banks operate.
The partnership also supports TSE's doctoral program by allowing PhD students to carry out scientific traineeships at the Banque de France under the joint responsibility of the TSE PhD supervisor and a researcher from the Banque de France.
