"New Economic Talent competition is an amazing opportunity to challenge yourself, to get valuable feedback on your work, to talk to professors who are experts in their field, and to get to know the high-quality work at CERGE-EI. It is an incredible help to your career, but it is also a lot more than a shaping professional experience." Zsófia, NET 2016 winner
