Специальные условия: RESEARCH GRANT COMPETITION - SPRING 2015 ROUND We are pleased to announce the Spring 2015 round of Economics research grant competition. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2015. The goal of the competition is to support policy-relevant research projects under five priority research areas. Grants in the amount of up to $12,000 are typically provided for up to 18 months of work. Research proposals can be submitted by individuals or small teams of CIS researchers. Young researchers and researchers based in the periphery may be offered smaller-scale development grants (up to $2,000) and training opportunities. A complete application package must be submitted online no later than April 15, 2015.

 

Summary. The goal of the competition is to support policy-relevant research projects under five priority areas. During the grant period research outputs are peer reviewed by thematic expert panels at EERC semi-annual research workshops. Research supervision is also provided through consultations with program staff and resource persons. The best findings are published as working papers and policy briefs, and are freely accessible on the web.

Grants up to $12,000 are expected to be awarded to CIS-based scholars – individual researchers or small research teams (up to 3 persons) for up to 18 months. Grant size depends on the number participants and specific budget requirements of the project. Junior researchers and researchers based in the periphery may be awarded "development" grants of up to $2,000, and training opportunities in the framework of EERC Research Development Program.

Research workshop. Proposals selected for the final review stage of the competition will be presented at December 2014 research workshop;  interim and final reports on funded projects - in June 2015 and December 2015, respectively. The final output of each project shall be a working paper/article and a policy brief. The best research findings will be published in the EERC working papers and e-print series.
