2013 NBG Research Call

In 2013 the Hellenic Observatory invited researchers with a recognised interest in contemporary Greece to submit an application for funding, in order to carry out a project on one of the following themes (1) Reform of Public Administration in Greece; (2) Social Insurance Provisions in Greece; (3) Foreign Policy.

The Call was open to all researchers with a university affiliation, who already held a doctorate (PhD degree) and had at least two years of post-doctoral research experience. Applications from groups of researchers were also eligible.

The call was made possible by funding generously provided by the National Bank of Greece, to which we wish to record our gratitude. This initiative is consistent with the Observatory’s mission to promote public policy research and to foster academic collaboration and networks and follows on from previous successful calls made in 2009 and 2011.

The HO received a large number of competitive applications, but could only award one grant of GBP £10,000 to each of the thematic areas.

Following on from the selection process the HO are now very pleased to announce the three successful research projects:
