Mission of the CES
The Czech Economic Society (CES) is an association of people working or interested in the area of economics. The main mission of the CES is to enhance the development and general knowledge of economics in the Czech Republic in a way that fully respects and supports plurality of opinions and autonomous evolution of individual schools of economics.
To achieve this aim, the CES organises lectures and seminars and competitions for young economists and produces publications focused on economics. Once every two years, it organises a biennial conference, which alternates at yearly intervals with the general assembly of the CES.
The CES is a member of the International Economic Association and the Council of Scientific Societies of the Czech Republic.
The Czech Economic Society has been awarding ‘The Young Economist Award’ to economists under 30 years of age who register for the competition by submitting their original, professional papers. Furthermore, the CSE awards the Karl Engliš Prize to the paper best dealing with Cech economic policy. Moreover, authors under 25 years of age who have never been awarded by the CSE in the past may be granted honourable mentions.Details
The prize is granted non-periodically by the CES management board to excellent representatives of Czech economics. The beneficiaries of the Prize may include economists with long-term local activity and foreign economists of Czech origin.Details
The Kateřina Šmídková Prize is given to commemorate the leading Czech economist professor Kateřina Šmídková, a longstanding member of the management board of the CES, professor of economics at IES FSV UK and director of the Economic Research Department of the Czech National Bank. The purpose of the Prize is to support female economists of Czech and foreign origin with long-term local activity and Czech female economists active abroad with exceptional standards of publication activity and to support their further professional development.Details
