The Foundation granted a EUR 20,000 encouragement award for distinguished research merits.

Juuso Välimäki, Professor of Economics at Aalto University's School of Business, is internationally known and distinguished in the scientific community.

Välimäki is one of Europe's leading microeconomists, specialising in the fields of game theory, contract theory, industrial organisation and information economics. Välimäki's research is characterised by its high quality and innovativeness.

He received his Master's degree in Economic Sciences from the Helsinki School of Economics (HSE) in 1989. Välimäki has held an assistant professorship at Northwestern University and a professorship at Southampton University in the United Kingdom.

He has served as Professor of Economics at Aalto University from 2002 and as a Visiting Professor at Yale since 2009. Välimäki's studies have been published by the most respected journals in economics, such as the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Economic Studies, and Econometrica.

As a testament to Välimäki's esteem in the scientific community, he worked for several years as editor of the Review of Economic Studies and is currently editor of the Journal of the European Economic Association.

The OP Financial Group Research Foundation established the recognition and encouragement awards in honour of its 40th anniversary. The recognition award is presented to persons who have demonstrated exceptional innovativeness in their scientific work and can be expected to produce significant results in the future as well.

The award now being presented to Välimäki is the second recognition award to be presented by the Research Foundation. The first award was granted to Professor Matti Keloharju from School of Business in 2014.
