Generation €uro Students’ Award

The European Central Bank and the national central banks of the euro area, including the National Bank of Belgium, run an annual competition for teams of students: the Generation €uro Students’ Award.

The aim of this competition is to give students an understanding of the fundamental principles of monetary policy and decisions on interest rates. That enables students to learn something about a large number of economic concepts and data and to link them together while building up many other skills such as team working, jointly constructing and defending an argument, or decoding statistics.
