The ECB is seeking applications from established scholars or promising early career researchers for the award of one or more scholarships to conduct legal research and publish an article on one or more selected topics. Candidates should hold a position in a research institution and cannot be in an employment relationship with the ECB. Each scholarship is endowed with a grant of EUR 5,000, which is not compatible with any other fellowships or grants received from third parties in relation to the same research project, unless the ECB expressly consents to this. The scholarship will be paid provided the research paper is published in an internationally renowned and peer-reviewed academic journal.
The European Central Bank (ECB) launched the Legal Research Programme (LRP) in 2008 to foster analysis of areas of law relevant to the ECB’s statutory tasks and to establish closer contacts with academia.
Application deadline [call for papers]: 22:00 CET on 18 February 2024
