Third Call for Proposals for STEG Larger Research Grants

Deadline: 3-October-2022

Amount: 100,000 GBP

Research may focus on broad systemic patterns and processes of structural transformation and growth for low-income countries, in a comparative sense across time or space, or more narrowly defined topics related to one or more of the following six research themes:

  • Data, measurement, and conceptual framing;
  • Firms, frictions and spillovers, and industrial policy;
  • Labour, home production, and structural transformation at the level of households;
  • Agricultural productivity and sectoral gaps;
  • Trade and spatial frictions;
  • Political economy and public investment.

Other areas of interest may not fit cleanly into any of the themes but are centrally relevant to STEG and are also encouraged. Research in middle-income countries will be considered if it informs growth processes or policies in low-income countries. The fund is meant for projects, which have greater financial needs due to, for example, greater time requirements, data or research assistance costs.
Commensurate with these greater budgets, they are expected to produce either multiple outputs or more fundamental contributions.
