My first contact with CERGE was a decade ago. A Ukrainian working on her Phd there came back to Kiev on a research fellowship to the Economics Education and Research Consortium in Kiev (now the Kyiv School of Economics). It was clear from her experience that CERGE was doing cutting edge research, and that Ukraine would benefit from that research. This student subsequently got her Phd and is teaching at Charles University---the first of many Ukrainians to benefit from training at CERGE. So when I was invited to my first CERGE research conference, under the auspices of the Global Development Network, I jumped at the chance----and have never regretted it.

The sole purpose of this foundation is to support the teaching and research at a graduate program in economics--the CERGE-EI in Prague. Our goal at the foundation has been to permit this fledgling institute to support graudate students and faculty to build the infrastructure that was missing from the previously Communist states of much of Europe. I support the goal and I believe the Foundation has played a key role in permitting CERGE-EI to compete with institutions of Western Eukrope, which is critical to maintaingin a presence in Eastern Europe. In all my experineces the Foundation has been cost effective, committed, and essential to its purpose.
