INET Research Grant

The Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) is an organization created to promote changes in economic theory and practice through conferences, research grants, joint ventures with academic and research institutions and other education initiatives. The Institute seeks to create an environment nourished by open discourse and empower the next generation of scholars with the necessary support to accelerate and advance new and important thinking on economic issues.

The Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) awards Research Grants to individuals and institutions to pursue ground-breaking high-impact research in the field of economics. The Research Grant program is one of the major initiatives of the Institute. INET plans to award approximately 50 grants per year ranging in value from $30,000-$250,000. Grants will be awarded primarily to individuals or teams of individuals affiliated with academic institutions, think tanks and other centers of vital research on questions of import. The Institute is particularly interested in funding early stage research and research scholars and realizes that related disciplines such as history, political science, psychology and adaptations from the physical sciences may offer much of value for the Institute’s program.

In conformance to the Institute’s commitment to encouraging new and consequential economic thinking, submissions in any subject area will be actively considered. In addition, at this time, the Institute is inviting proposals that intend to advance thought in economics with particular emphasis on the following areas of study:

  • Political Economy: The State, Economy and their Interaction
  • Theories of Finance, Radical Uncertainty, Asset Price Swings and the Interaction between Financial and Real Economic Systems
  • New Approaches to Empirical Macroeconomics
  • Network and Systems Theory
  • Economic History
  • History of Economic Thought
  • Human Capital and Growth
  • Development and Economic Inequality
