The Gustav-Stolper-Prize is awarded to outstanding scientists who have employed the findings of economic research to influence the public debate on economic issues and problems, and have made ​​important contributions to understanding and solving contemporary economic problems.


The award is named after the economist and journalist Gustav Stolper (1888 - 1947) who became co-editor of the Austrian journal "Österreichischer Volkswirt" in 1913 and was founder and editor of various economic publications.
