Dr Bert Van Landeghem of the InstEAD has recently been awarded two prestigious Fellowships, the first from Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) and the second from the University of Sheffield’s Vice Chancellor’s Fellowships (VCF).
His MSCA Fellowship is for a research project to explore the impact of labour market policies. Following this, Bert was awarded a VCF from the University of Sheffield. The VCF is a four-year scheme leading to a permanent academic position, and is designed to support exceptional early-career researchers who have the potential to be future academic leaders. As part of his VCF, Bert will receive individual training support and funding to develop his research still further.
Bert is a Research Fellow at the Institute for the Economic Analysis of Decision-making (InstEAD) in the Department of Economics and is an expert in the economics of well-being and in the applied microeconomics of policy evaluation. He has previously worked as a consultant for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and has published in leading peer-reviewed journals.
From studying his PhD at the University of Leuven in Belgium, Bert has rapidly become an outstanding academic researcher in his fields. In 2010 he was awarded a grant from the Dutch Scientific Organisation and in 2013, he has a key member of the team working with the Flemish Inter-University Network for Labour Market Commissioned Research.
