Prof. Joan Monràs awarded a two-year research grant from the Ramón Areces Foundation
UPF Professor Joan Monràs has been awarded a grant to conduct a two-year economics research project studying immigration and housing markets. Ramón Areces grants are awarded to exceptional researchers under the age of 40 working in the field of social sciences.
The funding will allow Prof. Monràs to carry out a study entitled "Immigration, cities of residence, economic activity, and housing markets". The project will examine European and American data on both the cities and the neighbourhoods that immigrants choose to live in, and how this is related to location incentives and housing markets.
Awarded by the Ramón Areces Foundation in October 2018, the grant will support research until 2020. Only nine other researchers were awarded Ramón Areces grants in 2018.
Prof. Monràs' research interests include labor economics, urban economics, and international trade. Besides teaching at the UPF, he is also Affiliated Professor at the Barcelona GSE, and a Research Affiliate at CEPR, IZA, and CReAM.
