2011 Research Grants

Four projects financed by the 2011 call for proposals

In order to foster high-quality and policy-relevant research in Italy, the Collegio funds research projects in the social sciences, both theoretical and empirical. The 2011 call for proposals was launched in January, and 11 proposals were submitted.

All submitted proposals have been evaluated by a Selection Committee nominated by the Board of Directors. Availing itself of the help of external peer reviewers, the Selection Committee assessed innovativeness, the likelihood of generating interesting and useful insights, the potential to give rise to top-quality publications, the degree of interdisciplinarity of the proposed research, the curricula of the researchers involved, and the appropriateness of the financial plan accompanying each research proposal.

The following four projects were recommended for funding:

Project title Primary Investigator
Researcher Mobility and Scientific Performance Aldo Geuna
Labor Income Risk over the Life Cycle: Measurement and Implications Giovanna Nicodano
Behavioral Price Discrimination: Theory and Evidence Mario Pagliero
Adverse Selection: Implications for Capital Flows and Welfare Filippo Taddei
