The Institute for New Economic Thinking aims to foster open discourse and to advance new thinking on economic issues and theory. The Institute’s notion of new economic thinking is deliberately open and non-dogmatic. Our hope is to support research that transforms our understanding of major economic problems and improves analysis of policy.
In this grant round, in addition to our call for research, we seek to fund projects that promise to advance the way economics is taught in and out of formal courses in economics. Preference will be given to projects promising lasting improvements in course materials and pedagogy that could potentially be widely adopted, rather than seminars or courses offered on a one-off basis dependent on continued outside funding. These proposals will be segmented and considered separately from the other applications.
Grant proposals are due by October 20, 2014, and should be no longer than four pages in length, plus a one-page summary and a detailed budget. A research jury will review first stage applications, and invitations will be issued to those applicants with the most promising proposals to submit more complete applications. Grants will be awarded by Spring 2015.
