Announcement of Grant Competition: EU-U.S. Policy Research and Debate 2012-2013

Aug 24, 2011

Cooperation between U.S. and EU-based institutions is encouraged by the Delegation of the European Union in Washington, DC. Activities should focus on reflecting and discussing on the EU-U.S. relationship and should address a growing transatlantic agenda for globalisation focusing in particular on future challenges and directions of transatlantic relations. 

Proposals are invited from think tanks, public policy research centers, and other non-profit and non-governmental organizations based in the United States for activities that encourage policy research and debate about EU-U.S. relations. For applications with such cooperation, a U.S.-based institution must take the lead in submitting applications, with any EU-based institutions involved acting as project partners. 

 Activities may target broad audiences or specific groups. They may include:

  • conferences, seminars and workshops;
  • policy research, briefing and working papers;
  • briefing sessions and fellowships targeting opinion-makers; and
  • other activities that facilitate greater understanding of the EU and EU-US relations and productive dialogue across the Atlantic amongst policymakers and analysts.

Application Deadline is 19 September 2011!
