UM´s professor and researcher Juan Dubra, PhD, was appointed Fellow of The Econometric Society, one of the world´s most prestigious societies dedicated to the advancement of economic theory. While Igal Hendel, also a Uruguayan Fellow, has been recognized for his work in the United States, Dubra is the only Uruguayan working in our country that is part of the organization.
The publication of an original research paper in Economics or statistical, mathematical or accounting analysis is essential to be a candidate for the annual election of Fellows. The candidates are nominated by other members of the Society, the Active Fellows vote and those candidates that obtained more than 30% of the votes become new Fellows.
Founded in Cleveland, in 1930, The Econometric Society defines itself as “an international society for the advancement of economic theory in its relation to statistics and mathematics”. Among its main activities, the Society is in charge of the publication of the journals Econometrica, Quantitative Economics, and Theoretical Economics.
