Each year ACE's steering committee make an award for the best paper on competition economics. The first prize was awarded in 2008/9.
The aims of the award are to promote research in competition economics and recognition for excellence both in theoretical and empirical analysis in this important area of economic policy and to encourage members to stay up to date with the best research.
The award will be given annually and will be based on a ballot among members of ACE, after a previous short-listing by the steering committee. The award will be EUR1000.
