The Institute for Quantitative Research Europe (Inquire Europe) provides financial support for academic research projects which have the potential to be applied in the field of investment management.
Inquire Europe particularly encourages early stage research, research on European issues and the use of European data and by researchers affiliated with European universities.
If you are a senior researcher or professor at a university, we stimulate you to share this call for papers with PhD students as we are also looking to provide financial support to young researchers.
Those interested in applying for the research grant must submit an outline of the project and a proposed time schedule. If a draft copy of the proposed paper exists, submit that version as well and indicate what further work is to be done and provide a proposed time-schedule. Papers are eligible for Inquire Europe funding only if substantial work on the project remains.
Papers that have been already presented at major academic conferences such as the American Finance Association, the European Finance Association or the Western Finance Association are not eligible for funding by Inquire Europe.
Multiple € 10.000 grants are awarded on an annual basis. Payments are made directly to the researcher, unless otherwise requested. Support of a research project by Inquire Europe does not in any way preclude subsequent publication of the paper in a journal of the researcher’s choice.
Completed papers may be invited to Inquire Europe’s spring or autumn seminar which gives you the opportunity to present and discuss your research with Inquire Europe members which include many decision-makers from the financial industry. If your paper is selected for a seminar, the institute will reimburse the researcher’s travel and lodging expenses for one author during the seminar.
We kindly request you to submit your proposal online and upload the required documents. The paperwork is limited and there are hardly any restriction on how to spend the research donation. The research proposal should include the following documents (in .pdf)
- A document that contains the following information:
- a cover page with title, authors, addresses and phone numbers
- a short abstract of no more than one page
- a statement of research objectives and a literature review placing the study in context
- a clear and detailed description of the research method and the expected form of the results, together with a discussion of the practical value of the project
- a proposed timetable
- In one .pdf the resumes of each of the co-authors
- A related paper, if available
The next deadline for submission of research proposals is Monday 31 July 2023 . The projects will be selected by the Inquire Europe Research Committee in Q3 2023.
