University Research Action: EIBURS 2010 Selection Committee Results

  •  Date: 06 December 2010

The EIB-University Research Sponsorship Programme (EIBURS) is part of the EIB-Universities Research Action, through which the EIB aims to foster its institutional relations with universities. EIBURS provides grants to university research centres working on research topics and themes of major interest to the Bank. EIB bursaries, of up to EUR 100 000 per year for a period of three years, are awarded through a competitive process to interested university departments or research centres associated with universities in the EU, Accession or Acceding Countries, with recognised expertise in areas of direct interest to the Bank. The scholarship seeks to enable the chosen centres to expand their activities in these areas.

For the 2010-2013 period, the EIBURS programme has selected three lines of research:

The EIB received 22 formal proposals for the 3 EIBURS sponsorships proposed for the 2010-2013 period. The following table indicates the distribution of the applicants by country and theme:
