The Economics Education and Research Consortium (EERC) and CERGE-EI,
the regional partners of the Global Development Network in the CEE and
CIS countries, are pleased to announce an inter-regional Research Grant
Competition on the theme: 'Cities - An Analysis of the Post-Communist

We are especially looking for research that:
* Has a clear research question which is academically relevant and adds
to the existing academic knowledge on the topic of investigation
* Is policy relevant and leads to policy lessons that are of interest to
an international audience

Note: We encourage proposals for policy relevant
interdisciplinary research on the intersection of Economics with other
disciplines, such as Political Science, Sociology, Demography,
Geography and Ecology. We also encourage proposals that are based on
comparative research spanning the CEE and CIS or research teams combing
CIS and CEE researchers.


The best research teams will be invited to present their projects at
either the EERC Research Workshop on June 27-29, 2009 in Kiev or the
CERGE-EI workshop in Prague on August 9-10, 2009. Representatives of
projects must attend the workshop in order to be considered for a grant.

Grants up to $18,000 will be awarded to individual researchers or small
research teams (up to 3 persons) for up to 12 months beginning in
January 2010 (with the possibility of a 6 month no cost extension).
