Research Grants provided by INQUIRE Europe
The Institute for Quantitative Research (INQUIRE) in Europe provides financial support for academic research projects with potential applications in the field of investment management. Several grants of €10,000 are awarded each year. Payments are made directly to the researcher, unless otherwise requested. Support of a research project by Inquire Europe does not in any way preclude subsequent publication of the paper in a journal of the researcher's choice. Completed papers may be invited for presentation at the INQUIRE's spring or fall Seminars. INQUIRE will pay the researcher's reasonable expenses incurred in connection with the seminar. More info on Inquire Europe, research grants that have been provided in the past, and on the application procedure, is available on INQUIRE’s website: www.inquire-europe.org.


NETSPAR Theme Grants
Netspar is a European network for research and education in the field of pensions, aging and retirement. It is an independent network of academics and practitioners in the field, supported by Dutch universities and private and public institutions that share a keen interest in Netspar's research topics. Researchers of seven Dutch universities, international scientists as well as representatives of insurance companies, pension funds, government bodies and supervisors are affiliated with the network. Every year, Netspar allocates theme-based grants; these annual grants are given for a three-year period. As of 2008, these grants are also available for researchers that are not affiliated with one of the (Dutch) partner universities, up to a maximum of €250,000.
