Aldi Hagenaars Memorial Award

Aldi (Aleida Johanna Maria) Hagenaars was among the first female chaired professors of economics in the history of the Netherlands. Aldi “worked hard and played hard”, with a zest for life matched by none, right until her untimely death on 30 June 1993.

Aldi exhibited all of the qualities which LIS holds so dear. She was an excellent scholar and a wonderful role model. Started in 1994, this award is dedicated to her memory.

Every year, the award is granted to the writer under age 40, whose LIS or LWS Working Paper from the previous year best demonstrates the qualities of good scholarship that Aldi exhibited.

If you or one of your co-authors are under age 40 when you submit your Working Paper for inclusion in our series, you will be eligible for this award. Please send us an email with your birth date and the title of your paper.

The award recipient receives a €750 cash prize, plus an invitation to serve as a faculty member, and to present the winning paper, at the subsequent LIS Summer Workshop.
