In May 2014 the EACB issued, in collaboration with its European think tank on co-operative banks, a Call for Papers to attract young researchers on co-operative banks. The purpose of this award was to stimulate research on the co-operative banking sector as well as attract young talents to investigate the different crucial aspects of co-operative banks’ specificities.
The EACB received a large number of applications, from different countries and on a broad array of subjects related to co-operative banks ranging from governance models in the Italian co-operative banking landscape to co-operative banking performance and lending capacity during the crisis.
The scientific committee of the Third EACB Award for Young Researchers on Co-operative Banks, after careful selection and according to the criteria established in the Call for Papers, has selected the following winner:
1. Mitja Stefancic, 'Performance of Italian Co-operative Credit Banks'.
The laureate was awarded during the 6th Convention on Co-operative banks held in Brussels on 3 March 2015.
