Francisco C. Santos receives the YSA 2017

Researcher Francisco Santos was distinguished with the 2017 Young Scientist Award for Socio- and Econophysics of the German Physical Society.

The Young Scientist Award for Socio- and Econophysics of the German Physical Society (DPG) recognizes outstanding original contributions that use physical methods to develop a better understanding of socio-economic problems. The division of socio-economic physics (SOE) is a division of the German Physical Society (DPG) devoted to the “Physics of Socio-Economic Systems”. Its aims are to foster research on these topics and to coordinate our activities and those of similar societies across Europe, and to interest young physicists in economic, urban, and social problems.
