Call for Proposals

New I4T Funding Call

Fourth I4T Call

DEADLINE: 25 July 2022 - NOW OPEN

STEG invites applications to the fourth call for proposals for Ideas for Transformation.

I4Ts are brief and largely non-technical essays (about 15 pages, double-spaced) utilising country-specific expertise to identify a specific policy distortion, market failure, or other similar opportunity to promote inclusive growth and development in a particular country or context. The idea would be to identify potential case studies that warrant further research. These might be specific and well-documented examples of a market failure or a policy problem – but ideally the cases should have broad relevance. For instance, an example of a local problem or issue will be more compelling if it can be taken as ‘typical’ of some broader set of cases. Successful applicants to the I4T call will receive funding of £1,000.

This round, we will be holding an open Q&A session on Friday, 1 July at 13:00 BST (GMT+1) with STEG’s Academic Leaders, Doug Gollin and Joe Kaboski. This provides prospective applicants the opportunity to find out more about the I4T initiative and to clarify what STEG is looking for from applicants. If you are interested in attending this open session, please let the STEG Team know at [email protected].
