'Marco Fanno Fellowship' 3rd Edition

Our Department has been awarded a 3-year 'Marco Fanno Fellowship' sponsored by the UniCredit Foundation. The main objective of this fellowship is to help Italian state universities attract and retain outstanding young economists by offering them a compensation level comparable to international standards. 

This year’s fellowships were awarded to two top Economics or Finance departments of an Italian state university offering a tenure-track Assistant Professorship (RTDB). The evaluation was based on the quality of young researchers recruited in the last 5 years (postdoctoral fellows and assistant professors), the department’s recruiting strategy with particular attention to international hiring, and the department’s overall scientific reputation. 

The UniCredit Foundation fellowship provides a contribution of € 45,000 for a three-year period. The Foundation will pay the fellowship directly to the Assistant Professor designated by the winning department, in three annual installments (€15,000 per year).
