The Experiments in Governance and Politics network (EGAP) is requesting statements of interest for leading edge experimental research projects on political accountability in developing countries. This grant round is specifically designed to foster knowledge cumulation across studies. Successful applicants will engage in closely related projects and adhere to a common set of research standards. The $1.8 million pool will support 4-6 research projects that address a common theme and/or one or more “grouped” applications that link 2-3 individual projects across different research sites. This request for short statements of interest seeks to identify clusters of research projects with comparable interventions and outcome measures which will form the basis of the main call. The deadline for submission of statements is March 17, 2014. More info here.
