Where can I find aid for research and transfer?

Researchers in the Faculty should know that they are eligible for a variety of grants from the European Union, Ministries and Councils of the Regional Governments (particularly, the Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid), as well as funding provided by the UAM itself.

UAM Research Service
This service is responsible for managing calls for proposals and grant applications for research projects of national and regional scope and within the UAM, as well as the administration of fellowship programmes in the same areas.

European Union Framework Programmes
The Directorate-General for Research of the European Commission has published various grant competitions in the framework of the programmes for “Cooperation,” “Capacities,” “People” and “Ideas,” under the Seventh Framework Programme. One of the areas of action is “Socioeconomics and humanities.”

CSIC Grants for Introduction to Research for university students

The work plan for these grants is developed in Centres or Institutes belonging to or affiliated with the Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigación Científica [CSIC]), under the direction of researchers from the staff of the CSIC or its affiliated Centres.
