The OSC is launching a larger research programme giving more opportunities for academic research with a humanities or social sciences perspective. These programmes are aimed at the university community and have the following three main objectives:
1. To support early career researchers through a PhD students’ Research Grant Programme;
2. To encourage established researchers to conduct projects in IOC priority fields of research through an Advanced Olympic Research Grant Programme, and finally
3. To respond to specific IOC research needs through an open call for proposals to Universities.
The 2014 edition of the PhD Students Research Grant Programme was launched in April. The complete explanatory document and the application form are available on our website. Application files should be sent to the OSC by email by 27 September 2013.
The new Advanced Olympic Research Grant Programme (2014/2015 edition) is addressed to university professors, lecturers and research fellows who have completed their doctorate or equivalent terminal degree and who currently hold an academic/research appointment covering the period of the grant. Applicants will have to submit proposals directly linked to the priority fields of research identified in the grant programme. A more detailed communication, including the objectives, rules and guidelines as well as the application form, will be available on our website as from next October.
The call for proposals for specific applied research projects responding to the specific needs of the IOC departments will be launched in the future. Further communication will be available out in due course.
