(ENGLISH TEXT ONLY) The 1st EoF Research Fellowship program is open to young doctoral level students in the field of economics or related academic fields, from all countries.
The world cannot be changed without changing practice and above all economic theory. We need a season of new economic thought because today the economy is the “grammar” of social language.
“Certain questions can no longer be deferred. The enormous and urgent task of facing them demands generous commitment in the areas of culture, academic training and scientific research, and a refusal to indulge in intellectual fashions or ideological positions, little islands that isolate us from life and from the real suffering of people”. Pope Francis
The Economy of Francesco aims to help young economists who are committed to or are aspiring to an academic career, to achieve the necessary scientific background in particular with regards to topics of interest to EoF.
To achieve this goal, 10 small research fellowships will be granted for the year 2021/2022 thanks to the donation of an international foundation that prefers to remain anonymous.
This first Research Fellowship programme aims to support and develop the work of the EoF Academy, the international network of scholars formed with the aim of conducting and promoting scientific research on issues relating to the Economy of Francesco. EoF aims to promote other similar initiatives in this field.
