Central Bank of Ireland Governor Gabriel Makhlouf launched the Generation €uro Students’ Award at St Mary’s College in Dundalk on 3 October 2019.

Now in its seventh year, Generation €uro is a pan-European economics competition open to Transition and 5th Year students in Ireland and across the euro area.

Speaking at the launch in St. Mary’s, Governor Makhlouf spoke about the importance of Generation €uro in developing the expertise of young people in the fields of economics, business and finance.

“The Central Bank is delighted to recognise up and coming young economists through the Generation €uro Students’ Award. This competition gives us an opportunity to recognise excellence in the next generation of young economists,” said Makhlouf.

“It also gives students the chance to build valuable life skills while challenging themselves to learn more about the work performed by the European Central Bank, the Eurosystem and the Central Bank of Ireland – institutions that contribute to monetary policy decisions and price stability and affect our daily lives,” he added.
