United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), together with its partners, now invites research proposals for the Southern Africa Towards Inclusive Economic Development (SA-TIED) programme.
The objectives of this request for research proposals are to:
- Provide an opportunity to researchers to conduct policy-relevant research on topics of relevance to macroeconomic policy in South Africa.
- Facilitate policy dialogue through engaging with researchers on policy-relevant issues and ensuring that research findings are communicated effectively to all stakeholders — including the academic community, policy makers, and civil society via policy summaries and dialogue.
Proposals from individuals, groups of individuals, and non-profit organizations are welcome. Researchers can be based in South Africa or internationally, and research teams can combine researchers from different countries and institutions.
Special consideration will be given to research teams that include junior and early-career researchers.
A total research honorarium in the range of US$3,000-10,000 will be paid upon delivery of a working paper, depending on the qualifications of the lead researcher and assessment of the proposal.
The remuneration will be expected to cover all costs associated with the conduct of all research proposed under the proposal, except attendance at the work-in-progress workshop and other knowledge-sharing and dissemination events organized by the programme.
