Dear colleagues, I am writing to let you know about the 2018 Regional Studies Association (RSA) Policy Expo grant scheme.
This RSA policy grant scheme is worth £15,000 (c. €17,000, c. $18,000) and aims to support research teams that address a societal challenge/ opportunity in a policy facing way with a broad and international policy impact. The two key deliverables from each Policy Expo are: · an article for Regional Studies, Regional Science with the Article Processing Charge (APC) sponsored by the grant (articles will be subject to peer review) · a book part of the new RSA Impact and Policy Series. This would be a minimum 25,000 and maximum 30,000 words policy book which will be bundled with the RSA journals and send to all RSA members and all libraries that have an RSA journal subscription thus providing the book/ researchers a global reach and footprint. This grant scheme has one annual call for applications and in 2018 we invite applications addressing the following themes: · Role of higher education institutions (HEIs) in regional development · Place-based policy making · The Chinese One Belt One Road initiative 2018 application deadline: 30th March 2018 More details on the Policy Expo Grant Scheme can be found at http://www.regionalstudies.org/funding/page/policy-expo-grant-scheme The application form is available here: http://www.regionalstudies.org/uploads/Call_for_Application_2018_2.pdf Please send your applications and queries to policye...@regionalstudies.org<http://policye...@regionalstudies.org/> Please help us spread the word about this research and career opportunity and forward to anyone interested in research funding and policy impact.
