(1) YANIL launches Academic Prize for innovative and outstanding research 

The Younger Academic Network of Insolvency Law (YANIL) is pleased to announce the launch of the YANIL Research Prize for Innovative and Outstanding Research. With this Prize, YANIL aims to put the limelight on the excellent research produced by younger academics in the field of European insolvency and restructuring law.
 
YANIL, a branch of the INSOL Europe Academic Forum, provides a lively and supportive network for younger academics to grow their academic talents. In pursuit of its objectives, various initiatives to present and publish research have been developed in recent years.
 
A new challenge pressing YANIL is to ensure that the research of younger academics enjoys the attention it deserves and is disseminated as widely as possible. The refreshing ideas of younger academics, thanks to new questions, methods, or solutions proposed, are considered crucial for the development of the academic debate. With this new Prize, YANIL aims to raise awareness of their research and support them in pursuing an academic career.
 
Presenting the main findings in short video’s
In order to raise the awareness for the research, the Prize involves several opportunities to present the research. This includes creating a short video in which the main findings of the research are presented. The video will be submitted by the applicants along with their research output. The videos of the winning applicants will be considered for publication on the YANIL/INSOL Europe and BWILC website, along with an abstract of their paper.
  
Three Prizes for younger academics
The jury of this first edition of the Prize is comprised of the board of YANIL (Gert-Jan Boon, Giulia Ballerini, David Ehmke, Emilie Ghio, Jonatan Schytzer and Eugenio Vaccari) and the chair of the IEAF (Prof. Rodrigo Rodriguez).
 
For this year’s edition, three prizes may be awarded: 1st place EUR 750; 2nd place EUR 500; 3rd place EUR 250.
The winners will also be invited to present their paper at an online YANIL research seminar that will take place at the beginning of 2024. 
 
Participating
The deadline for the submission is 4th November 2023. This edition welcomes submission for research that has been published (or is under review) in the period January 2022 to September 2023.
 
This prize is made possible with the financial support of the Foundation Bob Wessels Insolvency Law Collection (BWILC).

First Steps towards a New European Insolvency Instrument announced
The European Commission has announced the first steps in a possible new instrument in insolvency law. Building on the success of the European Insolvency Regulation Recast 2015 and the recently introduced Directive on Preventive Restructuring Frameworks 2019, DG Justice is takin the lead on a project arising from the work of the Expert Group on Restructuring and Insolvency and has identified possible avenues to pursue towards the convergence of insolvency law rules within the EU.

As part of the first phase (stakeholders consultation), feedback on a "Roadmap" (or Impact Assessment) has been sought by DG Justice. This is a great opportunity to help determine the shape of the next insolvency law measure and European insolvency law overall, as well as the desirability of the proposal outlined by the European Commission. To this end, INSOL Europe members in all jurisdictions, but especially those in recent EU accession and candidate countries, can help by filling out the online questionnaire. 

 

The questionnaire can be found here.

Deadline: 9 December 2020
