EERC biannual research workshops are designed to promote peer-review and exchange of ideas among junior CIS researchers and international resource persons. The workshops also constitute a transparent project evaluation mechanism, with specialized teams of distinguished international economists leading the peer-review process, discussing papers and mentoring projects throughout the grant period.

EERC 27th Workshop constitutes the final review stage of the Fall 2009 competition. Proposals selected for the final review stage of the competition will be presented at the December 2009 research workshop (at the Kyiv School of Economics); interim and final reports on funded projects – in June 2010 and December 2010, respectively. The final output of each project shall be a working paper/article and a policy brief. The best research findings will be published in the EERC working papers and e-print series.

The goal of the Fall 2009 competition is to support policy-relevant research projects under five priority areas (see Thematic focus below). Research supervision is provided through biannual workshops, as well as consultations with program staff and resource persons.
Proposals are solicited in the following five areas with relevance to current policy concerns in the CIS:
• Enterprises and product markets
• Labor markets and social policy
• Macro, financial markets and open economy
• Public economics
• International trade and regional integration

Applicants must be CIS citizens permanently resident or spending at least 50% of the grant period in the CIS countries. EERC admits participants of any faith, race, color, and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to individuals through EERC.
