Each year the AEGIS Collaborative Research Groups (CRGs) are invited to apply to the CRG Annual Grant Competition for funding to support their work.
The overall grant funding available through the Competition is €4,000. The AEGIS Board generally awards two CRGs each year with a grant of €2,000.
Grant funding is for a relevant activity organised by an existing AEGIS CRG. Preferably, either a CRG Coordinator or AEGIS member organisation should be part of the organising group. Each CRG is entitled to submit one application per grant cycle. However, a CRG that has been awarded a grant must wait for two years before applying again. (In other words, if awarded a grant in late 2022 for activities in 2023, one can only apply for a new grant in late 2024 for activities in 2025.)
An email inviting applications is sent once a year in October by the AEGIS CRG Coordinator. Applications should be submitted before mid-November, in time to be assessed at the half-yearly AEGS Board meeting in December.
The current AEGIS CRG Coordinator is David Ambrosetti (LAM, Science Po Bordeaux): firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications should be submitted by the individual CRG Coordinator(s).
A decision regarding allocation of the grants is made and announced within two weeks following the December AEGIS Board meeting.
The applications should be no more than two pages and must include the following:
For successful grant recipients, a report on the funded activity should be submitted to the AEGIS CRG Coordinator within six months of being completed.
