Assistant Professor Filippo Taddei wins the ECB's Lamfalussy Fellowship

We are proud to announce that Filippo Taddei, Assistant Professor of Economics, has been awarded the highly competitive Lamfalussy Fellowship for the year 2012 for his research proposal: "What really matters about financial frictions? Asymmetric information, limited pledgeability and their interaction". 

The Lamfalussy Fellowship is offered by the European Central Bank to promising young researchers who are committed to carry out research in one of the areas of interest to the bank. The fellowship was established to honor the contribution of Alexandre Lamfalussy, one of the leading central bankers of his time and also one of the main proponents of a single capital market within the European Union. He was a member of the Delors Committee for the Study of European Economic and Monetary Union, the General Manager of the Bank for International Settlements and the first President of the European Monetary Institute (in charge of preparing the third stage of EMU). Past winners of the fellowship include Mariassunta Giannetti (Stockholm School of Economics), Vivian Yue (New York University) and Ester Faia (Goethe University Frankfurt).
