Two awards presented at the 47th EGRIE Seminar

During the 47th annual seminar of the European Group of Risk and Insurance Economists (EGRIE), two awards sponsored by the SCOR Corporate Foundation for Science and the SCOR group were presented.


The two prizes are sponsored by the SCOR Foundation for Science and the SCOR group:

  • The SCOR-Geneva Risk and Insurance Review Best Paper Award went to Céline Grislain-Letrémy of CREST and Université Paris-Dauphine and Bertrand Villeneuve of Université Paris-Dauphine for their joint article “Natural Disasters, Land-Use, and Insurance”; 
  • The SCOR-EGRIE Young Economist Award1 went to Richard Peter of the University of Iowa and Pascal Toquebeuf of Université Grenobles-Alpes, for their joint article “Separating ambiguity and ambiguity attitude with mean-preserving capacities: Theory and applications”.


Both awards are organized under the aegis of the “Risk Markets and Value Creation” Chair, which brings together the Toulouse School of Economics and the Risk Foundation and is financed by the SCOR Foundation for Science.
