Founded in 2016, the National Economics Olympiad (NEO) is a problem-solving competition for Bachelor and Master students in Economics, organized by the study association AEclipse and the Royal Dutch Economic Association (KVS). The competition is organised in close collaboration with Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) and the Dutch Journal on Policy Economics (ESB).
Students in teams of three are tasked with solving challenging questions set by professors from different Dutch institutions encompassing topics related to the varied branches of economics. Over a three-hour period, these teams will attempt to solve these questions with the highest scoring team winning a prize of 300 EUR, the second place team 150 EUR, and the third place team 75 EUR. There is a separate prize for the highest scoring team of Bachelor students; being compensated 75 EUR.
