UEFA RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAMME
UEFA – the Union of European Football Associations
UEFA’s objective is to support research projects that are of high relevance and interest to its 55 member associations. The closer academia and the associations cooperate, the more impact the results will have on European football. For this reason, all research projects must be supported by means of a letter of recommendation issued by a representative from a UEFA member association.
Proposals for research projects in the following fields can be submitted for consideration by the UEFA Research Grant Jury:
- *Economics *History* Law *Management*Medical science* Political science *Sociology
UEFA wishes to promote research projects that focus on topics that are highly relevant to its member associations. There are no priority topics, the idea being to give the associations free rein to decide on the projects that interest them.
Consequently, applicants must submit a letter of recommendation written by a representative of a UEFA member association in support of the proposed research.
Research projects that draw parallels between multiple national associations are also encouraged (in such cases a letter of recommendation from at least one of the participating associations is required).
Given that the research should be feasible in a period of nine months, the timeline should start at the earliest on 1 July 2018 and end at the latest on 31 March 2019. The timeline must include the production of an interim report, to be submitted by 30 November 2018, and a final report, to be submitted by 31 March 2019.
