EARLI - Centre for Innovative Research

In order to foster existing and forge new research contacts, EARLI's Executive Committee (EC) launched the initiative called EARLI Centre for Innovative Research (E-CIR). The E-CIR aims at further stimulating innovative research among EARLI members and preparing research proposals for funding. EARLI grants one E-CIR per year, each for a 4 year period.

E-CIR Policy

The E-CIR initiative is aimed to stimulate innovative research in an international context. By organising two meetings each year for a periode of four years, these small, focused groups of max. 10 people can acquire knowledge and have opportunities to share their findings at the biennial EARLI Conference. 

You can consult the E-CIR Policy and check all the requirements and benefits via this link.
