CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THE SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS “RESEARCH INCUBATOR”

 

CREDI announces a call for young researchers to apply for the Research Incubator Support Program. This program aims to support research in the social sciences and enable young researchers to develop the skills of creating quality research project proposals relevant to the discussion and adoption of policies and programs in the Western Balkans region. The support program has already been successfully implemented with two cohorts of students. You can find more information about the program here.

 

WHAT IS THE FORMAT? One semester (15-week program with two-hour sessions and individual activities). Depending on the number of candidates from each country, some sessions may be organised in person. Each session will be organized as a combination of presentations and live discussions between participants. More about the format can be found here. The program is expected to start from 15th January 2024.

 

WHO THE PROGRAM IS FOR? Early-career researchers such as MA and PhD students, or those that have previously completed the 2nd cycle of studies, lack experience in developing research proposals in social science research. If you already have basic knowledge of social science research methodologies and experience conducting research, please consider applying for the Inquire Migration Research Laboratory Program.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR PARTICIPANTS? Participants in the program will:

  • Acquire skills to develop quality research project proposals in social science research.
  • Develop their own research proposal for the selected topic in social science research.
  • Gain access to CREDI research infrastructure, including data within the Data Archive for Social Sciences in Bosnia and Herzegovina – DASS-BiH, as well as access to literature, databases of research questions relevant to policy decision-making in the Western Balkan region (Research Question Bank), software and other research tools (such as microsimulation models and survey unit).
  • Have the possibility of hiring experienced researchers as advisors (co-mentors) from recognised research institutes and gaining practical experience working on mentors’ ongoing projects.
  • Establish cooperation with institutions and donors as potential beneficiaries of the results of their research during the implementation of the program.

 

 

HOW TO FINANCE THE PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM? The total cost of the program per participant is EUR 1,000. If you need support in financing your participation, please indicate this in your application, and we will contact selected candidates to discuss available options for funding. Your rights and responsibilities for program participation will be defined in your agreement with CREDI.

 

WHAT ARE THE APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS? Applicants should meet the following requirements:

  • They are students in the 2nd or 3rd cycle of studies or have previously completed the 2nd cycle of studies at one of the universities in the Western Balkan region.
  • They are available to attend 15 online sessions over 15 weeks between January and May 2024.
  • They applied to the program by sending a CV, motivation letter, and topic proposal that explains the idea, purpose, and beneficiaries of the proposed research.

 

WHAT ARE THE SELECTION CRITERIA? All candidates who apply for the program will have the right to participate in the program regardless of the number of applications for a specific topic, based on a review of the motivation letter and topic proposal, preferably specifying the key research question.
