Together with the City of Kiel and Schleswig-Holstein's Chambers of Commerce and Industry (IHK), the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) has been awarding the Global Economy Prize since 2005.
The prize is designed to provide impetus for tackling major global challenges through creative solutions to problems. It is used to distinguish influential representatives from the worlds of politics, industry and science who have made a special contribution to a socially responsible society based on individual responsibility.
The jury is made up of prize winners since 2005 and the President of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.
More information and the list of previous prize winners can be found on the website of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.
