EU-LAC Foundation's Open Call for Research Projects
Under the Foundation's six-monthly Open Call, researchers and consortia may apply for grants of up to 24,300€ to fund research projects on topics relevant to the relationship between the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean.
The EU-LAC Foundation's six-monthly Open Call for Research Projects, Second Semester 2014 edition, is now OPEN for applications. The closing deadline is 30 September 2014.
The Open Call seeks to stimulate research on issues relevant to the relationship between the EU, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The call intends to promote thinking on the potential of the bi-regional partnership among academics on both sides of the Atlantic. Therefore, consortia consisting of researchers from both the EU and the LAC region are particularly valued (but single-region applications are also welcome). The Call is mostly geared towards researchers in the social and economic sciences, but natural sciences projects are encouraged to apply as long as their project makes a valuable contribution to the EU-LAC relationship.
Funding of 24,300 Euros (excluding VAT; 30,000 EUR gross) is available in each edition of the Call. One project will be selcted per edition. Researchers participating in the Call must be affiliated with an EU or LAC research institute or university (public or private).
