CfA Visiting grants for access to data and expertise centers on inclusive growth, poverty, working conditions, social policy
Deadline: 15th August 2013
Academic researchers (including PhD students), policy practitioners, and others active within the research domains of InGRID (Integrating Expertise in Inclusive Growth) can apply for a visiting grant to access one of the research infrastructures. InGRID offers free-of-charge access to research infrastructures with data sets and expertise within the fields of poverty, living conditions, working conditions, vulnerable groups, policy analysis and statistical quality management in social sciences. This free-of-charge access includes access (from one week up to one month) to the data and the necessary support to work with the data (necessary know-how, statistical procedures, procedures to obtain access to the data etc.) as well as support with the organization of travel and accommodations. Further, InGRID will reimburse travel costs and provide a daily subsistence allowance. It is possible to combine these visits with InGRID summer schools or expert workshops.
The mission of InGRID is to integrate and innovate existing research expertise within the fields of poverty, living conditions, vulnerability, working conditions and social policy, and to improve existing statistical methods. The expected common impact of these activities is a better measurement and understanding of vulnerable groups in Europe.
Applicants must work in an EU member state or an associated country and apply for access to a research infrastructure in a country other than their own country of residence. Users can apply individually or in a group. More information about the conditions for access can be found in the terms and conditions.
There will be 10 calls for applications, launched quarterly, for access to the InGRID research infrastructures over the four years of the project. Please check the availability of your preferred research infrastructure in the most recent call before applying.
