The announcement that Paul Romer would share the 2018 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel (more commonly known as the Nobel Prize in Economics) with William D. Nordhaus was notable for the field of economics, and also for CIFAR.
Romer becomes the 19th researcher associated with CIFAR who has been awarded a Nobel Prize during its 38-year history, including five Laureates still active with CIFAR.
“The number of Nobel Laureates associated with CIFAR is just another example of how our powerful method for addressing important research questions attracts the very best minds from around the world,” said Alan Bernstein, CIFAR President & CEO.
CIFAR is a registered charitable organization supported by the governments of Canada, Alberta and Quebec, as well as foundations, individuals, corporations and Canadian and international partner organizations.
