Convocatòria (URL)
The call is open to researchers who can demonstrate research independence and evidence of prior achievements. For this reason, applicants need to meet the following requirements:
  • Certify at least 1 scientific article published in Q1 journals according to the rankings Scimago Journal Rank (SJR) from Scopus or the Journal Citations Report (JCR) from Web of Science, in the last 5 years before the closure of the call. For the latter, only indexes Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) and Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) are considered.
  • Hold a PhD awarded more than 2 years before the call deadline as written in the Rules for participation (i.e. before 24th January 2021).
    The call is aimed at supporting proposals led by individual researchers of any nationality who conduct their research activity at a non-profit organization: public or private university or research centre legally based in Spain or Portugal.
  • Dotació
    100.000 €
    Social research projects of up to 24 months in duration
    In order to optimize the workload of applicants and evaluators, the submission of proposals is structured incrementally in a two-stage procedure:
  • Phase 1: a short proposal must be submitted within the established deadline through ”la Caixa” Foundation’s call online management system available on the programme website.
  • Phase 2: successful preselected proposals are invited to submit a full proposal, budget, work plan, and two expertise documents (research and public/social sector) for the PL (and team if applicable).
    Both short and full proposals will be blind-reviewed, therefore the short and full proposals must be anonymous and must not contain any information by which the identity of the applicant (PL), research group or affiliation can be recognized. This includes references to bibliography and/or previous research projects.
    Opening of the submission period for short proposals: 9th January 2023
