An Emerging Field Group (EFG) consists of a small group of international researchers working in the field of learning and instruction active within a new, emerging field of research. EARLI offers these researchers the opportunity to work together during a short but intense period of time to explore the possibilities in their shared field of interest.
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 2018
The aim of the EFG initiative is to support exploratory, innovative and risk-taking approaches, allowing its participants to focus on experimental and new fields of research, with an emphasis on exploration and process rather than output and product.
Thanks to the extensive support and encouragement of the Jacobs Foundation, EARLI is able to launch the EFGs and commit to substantial funding of up to € 25.000 for each EFG.

An EFG can be founded by a group of researchers with the intention to work closely together during a short, fixed period of time. Each EFG runs for two years, with the possibility to extend this with another two years. The main objective of the EFG Policy is to allow researchers to experiment with their ideas and methods, without focussing too much on the outcome or result of this process.
