EERC Research Grant Competition 2010

The Economics Education and Research Consortium (EERC) announces its Fall 2010 research grant competition. Proposals are solicited in the following five areas with relevance to current policy concerns in the Commonwealth of Independent States:

    * Enterprises and product markets
    * Labor markets and social policy
    * Macro financial markets and open economy
    * Public economics
    * International trade and regional integration

Please note: We encourage proposals for policy-relevant research on the border of economics and other disciplines, such as political science, sociology, demography, geography and ecology.

Grants of up to $12,000 are awarded to 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.

The best research teams will be invited to present their projects at the EERC research workshop in December 2010 in Ukraine (tentatively planned for December 18-20). Heads of projects must attend the workshop in order to be considered for a grant.

Detailed information is available here

Applications are to be submitted online by October 12, 2010.

This competition is funded by the Global Development Network (www.gdnet.org). EERC is GDN's regional partner in the CIS countries. For further information about EERC activities please visit www.eerc.ru.
