The Calvó-Armengol International Prize is awarded every two years by the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics in cooperation with the Government of Andorra and the Fundació Crèdit Andorrà to "a top researcher in economics or the social sciences younger than 40 years old for his or her contribution to the theory and comprehension of the mechanisms of social interaction."
The Prize was set up to honor the memory of Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professor and ICREA-UAB Professor, Antoni Calvó-Armengol, a highly esteemed researcher from Andorra who died unexpectedly in November 2007 at the age of 37. The recipient of the Prize directs a fully funded workshop for young investigators from around the world. The prizewinner also delivers an associated "Calvó-Armengol Lecture" in Barcelona. The Prize includes a cash award of 30,000 euros.
