Ylenia BrilliMax Weber Fellow Ylenia Brilli has been awarded the 2013 Prize in Memoriam of Etta Chiuri for her paper “Mother or market care? A structural estimation of child care impacts on child development”.

According to the judges “A very important aspect of this paper is that the estimated model can be used to simulate the effects of policies aimed at boosting the economic conditions of the household or at subsidizing external child care.”

The prize is awarded for an outstanding paper written by an author under 40 in a category pertaining to one of the five fields of research in which Maria Concetta Chiuri, former professor of Economics at the University of Bari, was engaged.

In addition to this accolade, Brilli’s thesis “Child development and cognitive outcomes: The role of public and family inputs” has also been awarded the Italian Economics Association’s prize for the best PhD thesis, which aims to promote the work of young economists.
