Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the University of Mannheim has successfully launched the IPID4all program
to further promote the internationalization of doctoral education. The
program is intended for excellent international graduates who want to
pursue a doctoral degree in Mannheim as well as all domestic doctoral
candidates who pursue their degrees in structured doctoral programs or
individual doctorates. Grant authority is the German Academic Exchange
Service (DAAD). In 2017, the university successfully applied for a
second project phase and was granted further funding until June 2019.
Our members Ulrich Krieger and Dr. Höhne will be presenting at the 74th Annual Conference of the American Association for Public Opinion Research. The conference will take place in Toronto, Canada from 16th to 19th May.
Our member Sebastian Blesse wrote a summary of the workshop "Understanding Policy Preferences Using Experimental Methods" which took place 17th to 18th December.
After our successful first open call, the board of the SFB 884 decided to again offer an open call for the financial support of project-related investments in order to provide an excellent research environment. For an effective usage of our financial opportunities in 2019, this call may help to bundle individual project activities, such as additional data collection, organizing workshops, inviting guests etc. We therefore ask all SFB researchers (PhD students, PostDocs and PIs) to submit a short proposal (2 pages) in which you describe
• your research idea,
• how your request relates to your project and the SFB agenda,
• a short itemized budget including taxes,
• and a short statement on the planned time-line.
The call is oriented to more large-scale investments, for example additional multi-country or several waves surveys, but also other project-related ideas.
Please note that the rules for contract preparation were changed. For most requests, this results in a much longer process until the contractor can actually start working. Please consider these changes in your timeline.
Please send the proposal to management<at>reforms.uni-mannheim.de . Your proposal will be reviewed by the SFB board (Thomas König, Annelies Blom, Markus Frölich, Friedrich Heinemann, Galina Zudenkova).
The deadline for submission is 28.02.2019.
