Research Dissemination Grants

Research Dissemination Grants (formerly Special Project Grants) provide funding up to a maximum of £2,000 for activities involving the discussion and dissemination of new economic research. The activities may include the organisation of workshops, mini-conferences, short seminar series, and could be on-line entirely or in part. The purpose is to bring together a group of researchers from different institutions focusing on a specific area of interest and promote its development and understanding among the research community. Please note that funding of research projects or research assistance is excluded.

Please note that it takes up to four weeks for you to be notified of the outcome of your application. Therefore, any events or activities taking place within the four week period after the deadline, cannot guarantee funding.

This grant has now closed, and is not taking any applications at this time.

The scheme can support one-off single events or short series on a specific topic or provide seed funding to help initiate the first of a series of events; it is not designed to provide funding for an event within an established series. The Society aims to fund events across the breadth of the subject and applications are welcome for events concerned with pedagogic research in economics.

See the description above for the overall objective of the grant.

Members of the Royal Economic Society can apply for up to £2,000 for research dissemination activities.

Although venue and equipment hire costs can be requested, it is anticipated that these will normally be provided without cost by the host institution. Reasonable catering costs, travel and accommodation expenses can be requested within the RES Expenses Policy guidelines. 

Further details can be found on the application form. 

Applicants must be a member of the Royal Economic Society and not have been awarded a Research Dissemination or Special Project Grant in the last three years. The Event should be due to take place within 18 months after the deadline date and are either one-off (single event or short series) on a specific topic, or designed as the first in a potential new series of events.

Applicant’s should complete the application form and provide a brief cv (maximum two pages), along with a clear budget and evidence of co-funding (where appropriate). 

Further information can be found in the application form.
