Lucrezia Reichlin is awarded the 2021 Serena Medal

Monday, September 6, 2021

Professor Lucrezia Reichlin FBA is awarded the 2021 Serena Medal for her outstanding work and contribution to economics and econometrics. 

The Serena Medal is awarded annually by the British Academy for eminent services towards the furtherance of the study of Italian history, philosophy or music, literature, art, or economics. First awarded in 1920, it was endowed by Mr Arthur Serena after Great Britain’s alliance with Italy in the First World War.

“I am very proud to have received the Serena Medal for 2021. As an economist teaching in Britain and working on the European economy and the monetary union, receiving this prize has a particular meaning for me. The mission of the Serena award seems especially important today, after the exit of the UK from the European Union, as a way to maintain mutual understanding between the British and Italian societies alive.”
