ECSB Event Fund

ECSB Event fund provides financial support for members to organize or host a seminar, workshop, colloquium, policy forum or other event that fits the mission of the ECSB broadly conceived.

Selection criteria

An ECSB supported event must satisfy the following criteria:

  • The event must be led by an ECSB member (lead applicant). Collaboration across institutions and countries is welcome. However, one lead institution must be clearly identified. This institution will be responsible for managing the funding.
  • Events that focus on doctoral and early career researchers are encouraged.
  • If the event proposed is part of an existing event or conference, a clear rationale of the added value and distinct identity of the event must be provided.
  • Events should not coincide with ECSB’s main conferences such as 3E and RENT, but pathways to the conferences through paper development seminars are encouraged.
  • Provide a report and blog post on completion of the proposed project/event.
  • All funding to be claimed within one month of the supported event.
  • Event organizers commit to co-brand ECSB. Organizers will be requested to co-brand ECSB where possible (e.g. by including ECSB logo on all events materials and web site and distributing to participants ECSB promotional materials prepared by ECSB, leaflets, brochures and complimentary copies of ECSB publications).
