Call for proposals 2018 - The European Investment Bank Institute proposes a new EIBURS sponsorship under its Knowledge Programme EIRBUS - 2018 Closed!


EIBURS provides grants to university departments or research centres associated with universities in EU, candidate or potential candidate countries working on research topics of major interest to the Bank. EIBURS sponsorships, of up to EUR 100 000 per year for a period of three years, are awarded through a competitive process to interested university departments or research centres with recognised expertise in the selected area. Successful proposals entail the delivery of a variety of outputs that will be the subject of a contractual agreement with the European Investment Bank.

For the academic year 2018/2019, the EIBURS programme is seeking proposals on the new research theme: ‘Improving the measurement of the indirect effects of investment projects: specifying and calibrating EIA methods to maximise compatibility with CBA’


The research programme would consist of four tasks:

  • The researchers would review the range of impact assessment methods that show the greatest promise of arriving at workable compatibility with CBA.
  • The second part would consist of developing two impact models that incorporate all the necessary conditions to make them compatible with the value added measures of CBA
  • The researchers then would simulate the effect of various types of capital investment project on each of the two economies.
  • The researchers would finally assess the extent to which impact assessment results would differ from results conducted by a ‘typical CBA’.
