25th Anniversary Gala

Research Competitions

CERGE-EI is pleased to announce that applications for Round 16 of the RRC (with projects running in calendar Year 2016) have entered the review phase.

We expect that the call for proposals for the next round (Round 17) will be issued in spring 2016. The Call for Proposals will be placed on this website.

Since 2000, the Global Development Network (GDN) has provided substantial funding to CERGE-EI to help foster empirical, policy-relevant development research by individuals and institutes in developing countries. These funds are intended to strengthen the regional development networks that form the core of the GDN. Each GDN region is given a significant degree of autonomy regarding project structures, budgetary limits and review processes.

CERGE-EI has been very fortunate to benefit from the expertise of 200+ reviewers in each round of the competition. In particular the Vienna Institute for Economic Studies (WIIW) has been extremely generous each and every year since the competition's launch.
