Call for Research Project Proposals 2022
In 2018 the Hellenic Observatory launched an exciting research initiative to further fulfil and develop its mission and study of contemporary Greece in the field of the social sciences. The programme became possible due to new funding granted for the specific purpose of furthering the Hellenic Observatory’s research agenda. The Hellenic Observatory would like to acknowledge grateful and sincere thanks to the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation (ACLCF) and Dr Vassili G. Apostolopoulos for the provision of funding for this purpose.
Research Themes & Level of Awards
The LSE’s Hellenic Observatory (HO) is pleased to announce a new round of research project funding. In line with the HO’s mission to promote high-quality social science research on contemporary Greece, this round of the scheme will fund up to three projects on three Research Themes (see below). Under each of these themes, applicants may submit proposals lasting 24 months (with a budget of up to GBP£20,000) or 12 months (with a budget of up to GBP£8,000). The HO reserves the right to adjust the length and level of any award.
The Hellenic Observatory would like to acknowledge grateful and sincere thanks to the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation (ACLCF) and Dr Vassili G. Apostolopoulos for the provision of funding for this Research Call.
Applications are invited for projects that address one of the following Themes:
- Political and Social Mobilisation in Greece in Response to the "Migration Crisis"
- Vaccine Hesitancy and Opposition to Lockdowns in Greece
- Effects of the Pandemic on Vulnerable Populations in Greece
The Call is open to researchers with a university affiliation, who hold a doctorate (PhD degree) and normally have at least two years of post-doctoral research experience. This criterion does not apply to the research assistants appointed to the project.
Applications from groups of researchers are also eligible. The PI and lead members must fulfil the eligibility criteria.
Applicants who have previously been awarded funding from the Hellenic Observatory’s research calls cannot reapply in the same academic year that the previous project finished.
Applications are limited to one application per person/group each year.
How to apply
Proposals should be submitted electronically in Word format to Hellenicobservatory.Research@lse.ac.uk
Proposals should not be longer than 2,500 words (Calibri font, size 11, justified alignment, 2cm margins, single spaced). Proposals have to address the five evaluation criteria laid out in the Selection Process below and to be structured under the following sub-headings:
- Summary: project title, name of the PI (and other lead researchers together with a structure of the team and the allocation of tasks across its members), start and end dates, total budget figure
- Research objectives and project outline (including literature review)
- Planned Publications (other than the Policy Brief and the Research Paper- see Deliverables below): format, content, publisher, date of submission
- Annex 1: Personnel (including short biographies). Full CV’s should be attached as separate documents together with a listing of cited references.
- Annex 2: Detailed Budget - see Budget below. Please complete the Excel budget template provided.
The budget should justify the costs identified for the project. Eligible costs include salaries, travel, research assistance, impact and knowledge exchange, and publications, in so far as they can be accepted as essential parts of the proposed research. Overhead costs of up to 15% of the total budget are allowed, but these should be included in the budget. The selection committee has the right to request additional information regarding budget costs and to award a smaller amount than the one requested or advertised. Awards must be used solely for the purposes set out in the application. An amount of up to 20% of the total budget can be transferred between budget headings without reference to the Hellenic Observatory. Requests for budget transfers in excess of this amount should be addressed to the Hellenic Observatory.
