Call for Research Projects
Deadline: July 31, 2012
Europlace Institute of Finance
The Europlace Institute of Finance (EIF), a foundation recognized as serving the public interest, aims to implement and develop existing and potential synergies, on the French and European levels, between research/training in economics and finance and financial market professionals (financial intermediaries, investors and managers, issuers, market companies). The founders of the EIF are committed to provide, over time, the resources for this undertaking.
As in previous years, in 2012 our Foundation has again issued a call for research projects. This call is addressed to the entire academic community concerned with financial issues, with no restrictions in terms of academic disciplines.
The EIF proposes financing 10 research projects, each of which will receive Euro 10,000 in funding.
THEMES: The group of Professional Fellows has expressed a wish that the projects funded address themes that it considers to be of major interest in the present situation and grouped into three major areas:
- Finance and sustainable growth
- Market infrastructures and microstructure
- Risk Analysis
In the Appendices you will find a description of themes selected for 2012 together with two short notes dealing respectively with Regulation and the High Frequency Trading. The purpose of these notes is to stimulate thinking and questioning in relation to these two themes, which are viewed as high priority.

Projects involving a number of teams, and especially those having a genuinely European dimension, will be studied with particular interest. The closing date for the submission of applications in response to this call for projects is 31 July 2012.
