CO-LEAD – Francesca Regoli,
CO-LEAD – Fabio De Menna,

The new call for Research and Exchange Mobility Grant is open . Deadline for project submission: 3rd December 2018

Projects should be carried out by students/junior researchers from RPLC partner institutions with the involvement of RPLC faculty members.

Proposed research projects should be related to topics addressed by RPLC Policy Networks and should aim to develop an interdisciplinary and comparative approach. Thus, the inclusion of a mobility period within the proposal is mandatory. Clear outputs should be identified and developed in line with RPLC purposes. Collaboration with other partners (both from within and outside the RLPC network) is also mandatory. In addition, the involvement of policy makers is strongly suggested.”
