(Nobel prize medal for Economics, by Gunvor Svensson-Lundqvist (1968), gold, struck, 67 mm., inv. nr. NEPK0076)
On December 10, 2019 is it fifty years since professor Jan Tinbergen and the Norwegian professor Ragnar Frisch received the first Nobel Prize for Economics. This new Nobel Prize had been created only that year. The Nobel Prize was awarded to them for their ground-breaking work in the field of Econometrics. Internationally, they are regarded as the founders of this new branch of science. From 1933 to 1974, Tinbergen was professor at the Netherlands School of Economics, the predecessor of Erasmus University Rotterdam. The new presentation of the many Medals of Honour and others that Tinbergen received during his career, is a university tribute to one of her most distinguished scientists.
