European Science Foundation (ESF)
The European Science Foundation is inviting proposals under its new European collaborative research project in the social sciences 2001-2003. The new scheme is open to applications on any topic within the social sciences that demonstrates an international framework for research collaboration. Projects need not be exclusively European in the topic focus.
The scheme is designed to enhance the continuing process of European academic networking and career development by providing financing for problem-driven research projects to consolidate these achievements and trends. It offers the opportunity for research-led innovation in topic choice and directions for international research. Applications are invited from researchers based in universities and research institutions in those countries whose national research funding agencies are signatories to the scheme (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UK).
The scheme offers the opportunity to fund multilateral projects addressing international topics and issues pooling European research expertise. Project applications must involve collaboration amongst research teams in a minimum of three European countries.
