â‚¬30,000 Research Grant
The Evens Foundation is proud to announce the Evens Foundation Scientific Challenge 2013: the Neuroscience of Empathy.
In the framework of this challenge a grant of â‚¬30,000 will be awarded to an individual or group with an established track record of research in the behavioural neurosciences involving human subjects, and that proposes to investigate the neural processes of empathy. By encouraging research in this field, the foundation seeks to substantiate its initiatives related to constructive conflict management in the framework of its Peace Education Program.
The grant, which will be awarded by an international expert jury, is intended to fund the initiation of new research or to support a research project already in progress. Preference will be given to projects that explore how empathic behaviour can be encouraged or stimulated.
Further information about the criteria can be found here. Submissions should be provided in English in electronic form or by post before 15th September 2013 to Ms Marjolein Delvou.
