Lösch Prize

The August Lösch Association and the City of Heidenheim jointly grant the August Lösch Prize.                                          

The prize was created in 1971 and first awarded in 1972 by the City of Heidenheim in honour of August Lösch (1906-1945), one of the founders of modern Regional Science and a native of Heidenheim. The prize rewards outstanding research in the field of Regional Science, and carries an award of Euro 4000.

The prize recipient is chosen by an international committee. Its members are Kristian Behrens, Rainald Borck, Kristof Dascher, Hans Koster, Gunther Maier, Annekatrin Niebuhr, Matthias Premer, Javier Revilla-Diez, Andres Rodriguez-Pose and Roger Vickerman.

August Lösch's life has recently attracted renewed interest. Applicants for the prize must be able to avail of the most recent biographical insights into August Lösch, and pertinent papers will be posted here by September 2024.

The call for the 2025 prize will be published here, on this page, and in the ERSA newsletter, come November 2024.

The three most recent prize winners are Jonathan Dingel, Cécile Gaubert, and Jorge de la Roca. Further details on these winners' contributions can be found on these pages. For earlier prize winners please see Johannes Bröcker's website.
