BSE Seed Grants 2021 provide €98K in research funding for Affiliated Professors

Titles of Seed Grant projects

The Barcelona School of Economics has awarded nearly €100,000 in funding to 14 researchers in the 2021 edition of the BSE Seed Grants. The Seed Grants are supported by the Severo Ochoa Research Excellence Program.

The call for Seed Grants is open to all BSE Affiliated Professors. The program primarily aims to fill a gap in the availability of funding that researchers often face at the beginning of their careers and contributes to making more competitive offers in the junior job market. 

The Seed Grants also provide funding to BSE researchers at more advanced stages of their careers who require special data or research assistance support. 

By addressing both of these needs, the Seed Grants strengthen the capability of the BSE to both attract and retain Affiliated Professors conducting applied research.

Including this year's call, a total of 93 BSE Seed Grants have been awarded to 67 researchers. Of the 93 projects:

Some of this year's new Seed Grant projects will surely join these lists in the future!
