Dear friends,

it it seems to me that this is a grant that could be used to work on open
money developments ... can we mobilize our network for a project combining
several institutions and groups ...


The link below calls for proposals by the European Union for a four to five
years research on finance that explicitly calls for alternative approaches
to finance from an interdisciplinary perspective. Given the amount of the
project (several million euros), it is expected to attract proposals of
teams composed of around ten or more research units coming from as many
Europeans countries as possible. The project has not only a scientific
objective, but also a normative one, and it should not only include academic
teams, but also engage stakeholders such as researchers having some link to
trade unions, organizations engaged in the protection of the environment,
among others. Ronan O'Brien, in charge of the project, is very open to the
socials studies of finance and is quite available for any questions
concerning the ways to submit an acceptable proposal. Note that the deadline
is in February.

Miriam Kennet of the Green Economics Institute (
greeneconomicsinstitute at yahoo.com ) and the New Economics Foundation (
sargon.nissan at neweconomics.org ) are thinking about making proposals. So if
you are interested, why not contact them.
