To catalyse interest in its One Bank Research Agenda, the Bank of England launched two competitions.
The first was on Data Visualisation. To coincide with the release of the new Bank data sets, we wanted to see what novel insights they can yield. Entrants were free to focus on whatever they liked, as long as it employed some of the newly available data in some way.
The second competition was for the best research paper – the “One Bank research” competition, and is now closed. We were particularly keen to engage early career researchers across the academic world.
The winners of each competition were decided by separate judging panels of Bank staff and external academics. The prize for both competitions was £5,000.
