CREES wins European Commission funding for International Staff Exchange

Posted on Thursday 26th April 2012

Dr Jeremy Morris is representing CREES in a €256,000 European Commission, International Research Staff Exchange Scheme, awarded to the project: 'Imagining Development: A Multidisciplinary and Multilevel Analysis of Development Policies and their Effect in the Post-Socialist World.'

This project will establish a world class research group with a focus on (foreign and domestic) development policies in post-socialist spaces. Thanks to its wide geographical and disciplinary focus, this IRSES will provide an international and intercultural environment for a team of researchers to connect, reflect, come up with new findings and establish new collaborations in order to help them further their regional specialism and professional development.

The research partner institutions are in the Baltic States, China, Georgia, Russia and Switzerland. CREES is negotiating to become the lead institution in this project along with Tallinn University. The project leader is Dr Abel Polese.
