IREF is happy to support research papers in public finance (taxation, gov’t expenditure, public debt), federalism, (de)regulation, competition policy, trade, capital movements, money and monetary policy, EU policy making, pension systems, innovation and entrepreneurship. The emphasis is on Europe and comparative studies are also welcome.

We offer an amount between 3,000 and 7,000 euro for each selected paper or short book project, depending on the seniority of the author and the number of authors. Priority will be given to proposals based on free-market principles that contain straightforward implications for policymakers.
The research papers can be theoretical or applied, they will be circulated as IREF working papers and we expect the authors to publish the final version in a reputed academic journal.

Those interested in submitting their research proposals should write to Professor Enrico Colombatto, who is the head of research at IREF:

The deadline for submitting research proposals is 31 October 2016. Priority will be given to proposals submitted by 30 September 2016.
