Aug 2015

EU-LACThe call for proposals for the Second Semester 2015 Edition of the Open Call for Research Projects is open.

Under the Foundation’s regular Open Call, researchers and consortia may apply for grants of up to 25,200€ (30,000€ gross amount) to fund research projects on topics of relevance for the relationship between the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean. Each edition of the Open Call awards one research project. The Foundation will publish the results of the selected study.

The Foundation has decided to narrow the focus of eligible proposals. The current edition of the Open Call for the Second Semester 2015 welcomes research proposals from among academic disciplines pertaining to the realm of social sciences and the humanities (e.g., Political Science, Sociology, Economics, History).

The Open Call is part of the Foundation’s effort to promote mutual knowledge and visibility of the partnership among the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean Stimulating debate on issues that are relevant to the EU-LAC agenda enables the Foundation, within its work programme “Explore”, to propose ways of cooperating on these issues in the bi-regional relationship.

The deadline to present the proposal for the current Open Call is 30 September 2015.

Proposals presented under the Open Call will be evaluated by the Foundation’s independent Academic Council, consisting of five eminent experts from the fields of EU-LAC relations, European, Latin American and Caribbean Economics, and Political Science.
