The Winning DCG Team

The team of DCG students (Matej Urbančič, Katarina Grad, Petra Vidmar, Lara Meglen and Tomaž Rode) is the winner of the Slovene part of The European Central Bank (ECB) international competition entitled Generation  €uro. It took place on 16th March 2017 in the Bank of Slovenia and joined the teams of 26 Slovene high schools from all over the country.  This is the second consecutive win for the DCG team at this competition.

The competition offers an opportunity to the generation that grew up with the concept of Euro, to learn about the monetary policy, its relationship with economy and broaden the knowledge of central banks functioning. The jury recognised in the team’s presentation profound and conceptual understanding of a rather complex problematics of the Eurozone monetary policy. As a reward, the DCG team will travel with their mentor, Tadej Rifel, Ph. D., and the representatives of the Bank of Slovenia to the ECB Seat in Frankfurt. There, Mario Draghi, the President of ECB, will congratulate the DCG team. /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
