Eco Notepad launches its first edition of "Défi Bloc notes éco" (Eco-Notepad competition)

The Banque de France created the Eco Notepad blog two years ago in order to reach out to a wider public and improve understanding of what its experts do. Now, with the Eco Notepad Competition, the Banque de France would like to give the floor to young economists!

In partnership with the French newspaper Les Échos and Citéco (link to website, in French), the Banque de France is calling on students who would like to share their ideas and knowledge and submit a blog - in English or in French - on the topic:

What are the economic consequences of the current technological revolution?

Two winners will be selected by a panel of experts based on the rigour of economic reasoning, the quality of writing, its educational value and the originality of its ideas. 

The winning entry will be published on the Banque de France's website and will receive a prize of 2 000 euros. Second prize is 1 000 euros.

WHEN? The competition is open from February to the end of June, 2019.
HOW? Students must register and submit their blog online (link to website)
