Deadline: January 3, 2023
Proposals are invited for the STEG Small Research Grants 2023. The Small Research Grants can fund research assistance, data collection and/or purchase, and potentially research stipends/teaching buyouts.
Research may focus on broad systemic patterns and processes of structural transformation and growth for low- and middle-income countries, in a comparative sense across time or space, or more narrowly defined topics related to one or more of the following six research themes:
- Data, measurement, and conceptual framing;
- Firms, frictions and spillovers, and industrial policy;
- Labour, home production, and structural transformation at the level of households;
- Agricultural productivity and sectoral gaps;
- Trade and spatial frictions;
- Political economy and public investment.
- Grants can be between £10,000 and £25,000.
- Open to researchers all over the world.
- Principal investigators applying to SRG calls should currently have a PhD or be enrolled in a PhD programme. In exceptional circumstances, they will consider applications submitted by principal investigators who do not fit these criteria, however, they must be able to demonstrate a history of high-quality academic and/or policy-relevant research.
- Although there are no formal qualification requirements for co-investigators, co-investigators on STEG-funded projects usually have a PhD or are enrolled in a PhD programme.
- The knowledge, expertise, and qualifications of the entire research team will be taken into account when evaluating the proposal.
The application deadline is Tuesday, 3 January 2023 at 23:59 GMT. Applications received after this time will be considered for the next SRG round.
