European Court of Auditors launches 2018 Grant Programme

Posted on 11 April 2018

The European Court of Auditors and the European University institute (Historical Archives of the European Union) are launching the 12th edition of their Grant programme. Applications should be submitted by the 25th of June 2018.

The programme of grants is aimed at researchers engaged in research on European public finances, in particular their impact on various areas of European society and culture, and on the historical development of the "external control" function in the EU context.

The intention is to award two grants. It should be stressed that the programme is open to any type of researcher (e.g. lawyers, economists, historians or public-finance specialists) interested in the EU’s public finances and the impact thereof.

The programme is open to all current postgraduate students (master’s and doctoral candidates) and to postdoctoral students or university teachers who have completed their master's degree or doctorate within the past five years and who currently hold an academic post.

These grants are intended to enable researchers with an interest in EU public finances to broaden their research through access to the Historical Archives of the European Union, to which the Court has entrusted its own historical archives and those of the Audit Board (1958-1977). Through the programme, the Court wishes to make it easier for researchers to access and consult the collections available at the Institute in Florence.

The Grant Programme Selection Committee is composed of the former Director of the Historical Archives of the European Union and of senior (or former) officials of the European Court of Auditors.
