Call for Proposals in a Joint NSF-BSF Program in Economics and Decision Sciences
The U.S.-Israel Science Foundation (BSF) is pleased to announce the opening of a new round ofapplications in a joint funding program in Economics and Decision Sciences, with the Division of Social and Economics Sciences (SES) of the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF).
This NSF-BSF program is not a “special” program with the NSF setting aside money for potential grants. Rather, it is an integral part of the regular NSF programs in these disciplines, with no “special” funds. Clear understanding of these NSF programs by the U.S. partner is essential before embarking on proposal writing.
Synopsis of Programs:
- The Economics program supports research designed to improve the understanding of the processes and institutions of the U.S. economy and of the world system of which it is a part. This program also strengthens both empirical and theoretical economic analysis as well as the methods for rigorous research on economic behavior. It supports research in almost every area of economics, including econometrics, economic history, environmental economics, finance, industrial organization, international economics, labor economics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics, and public finance.
The program also funds conferences and interdisciplinary research that strengthens links among economics and the other social and behavioral sciences as well as mathematics and statistics.
A full description of the current program can be found in the NSF solicitation on the NSF website. It is strongly advised for all potentials applicants (including Israelis) to read the document carefully: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5437
