Institut Europlace de Finance

✔️A foundation of recognized public utility since 2005, the Institut Europlace de Finance aims to implement and accelerate the synergies between research/training in the field of economics and finance and professionals in the financial market.

The founders of the Institute have pledged to provide the resources for this initiative in the long term.

As in previous years, the Foundation is launching a call for research projects in 2021. This call is addressed to the entire academic community concerned without any restriction in terms of academic disciplines.In partnership with the Louis Bachelier LABEX, the Foundation will be funding 15 research projects, each of which will receive financing of €10,000

The projects funded will focus on themes considered to be of major interest in the current context. These themes are grouped into six axes.

All projects must have at least one researcher affiliated to a French academic institution. Projects involving several teams, especially those with a clear European dimension, will be examined with particular interest.

In submitting an application, project leaders commit themselves, if their project is selected, to developing it (through meetings and discussions between the teams) with one or more actors from the Paris financial market. Where appropriate, responses to the call for projects may refer to links that already exist and can be strengthened in the context of the project.

Deadline for submitting applications: 15 october 2021
