The GLM | LIC program has a total budget of €10.07 million (£8.9 million) to be allocated to research. Promising research projects are selected for funding with the overall objective of delivering a significant new body of evidence on growth and labor markets that will help shape policies in LICs. The program aims at including theoretical work as well as applied macro- and microeconomic studies. Though the focus will be on quantitative research, qualitative research and case studies, or combinations of those, are eligible for funding as well.

Besides high-quality research, research uptake and capacity building are important components of the program. Applications for research projects therefore have to specify an impact plan, including early engagement of policy makers and other stakeholders in the design and implementation phases of the project. Capacity building through involvement of LIC-based researchers is also strongly encouraged.
It is foreseen that up to 30 grants will be awarded for research projects of various sizes of institutions around the globe, with a substantial proportion of funds routed to research activities and capacity building in LICs. Descriptions of projects funded under Phase I and II can be found here.
The GLM | LIC Phase III Call for Proposals is now closed.

More information on the call and how to apply can be found in the menus listed on the left of this page. Full call specifications are available under GLM Materials.
