Call for proposals — EIB – Universities Research Sponsorship Programme (EIBURS)

EIBURS provides grants to university research centres working on research topics and themes of major interest to the Bank. EIB sponsorships are awarded through a competitive process to interested university departments or research centres associated with universities in the EU and candidate or potential candidate countries with recognised expertise in EIB-selected areas.

Successful proposals entail the delivery of a variety of outputs (research, organisation of courses and seminars, networking, dissemination of results, etc.) that will be the subject of a contractual agreement with the Bank.

For the academic year 2012/2013, the EIBURS programme has selected three new lines of research:

  • Measuring impact beyond financial return
  • Financial literacy
  • Cost/Benefit analysis in the Research, Development and Innovation sector

Budget: EUR 100 000/year for up to three years

Deadline: 14 September 2012
