RESEARCH FUNDING

Netspar facilitates innovative academic research in all of the social sciences, as related to various aspects of aging and retirement financing.

The expansion of the current research agenda means that Netspar can now accept research proposals from academic disciplines beyond economics, such as sociology, psychology, law, and communications. Netspar awards subsidies ranging from € 10,000 to € 500,000. Both short- and long-term research projects are considered and research projects can be performed by an individual or a team.

Depending on the type of grant, the Netspar Board of Directors may ask for the advice of the Scientific Council and/or Partner Research Council, or even another independent, external advisory committee, before awarding the subsidy. You can find all current and past projects granted in our project database.
