Academy of Marketing Research Funding 2013
Closing date for applications is noon (GMT) on May 17th 2013.
The Academy of Marketing Research Committee invites members of the Academy of Marketing to submit research proposals for funding of up to £2,000 on any marketing topic under the 2013 Academy of Marketing Research Initiative Funding scheme.
We are pleased to announce that one of the awards in 2013 will be the European Journal of Marketing Award for Research in Marketing. We extend our thanks to Emerald for their support in this area of the Academy’s activities. It is a further reflection of the deepening relationship between Emerald and the Academy of Marketing.
Research proposals can cover any aspect of research in the broad area of marketing. All proposals must be in accordance with the details below.
It is a condition of the funding that the research be completed in time for presentation at the July 2014 Academy of Marketing Conference in Bournemouth. An amount equal to the conference fee for one person from each successful application will be provided for attendance to the 2014 conference in Bournemouth (other expenses for conference attendance will need to be met by the attendee). This amount will be in addition to the funds requested in the research proposal. A short (maximum 4000 words) final report must also be submitted by the members of each successful proposal to the Academy of Marketing Research Committee by September 30th 2014.
Members of the Academy of Marketing Research Committee will assess each proposal. Successful applicants for the funding will be announced at the Academy of Marketing Conference in July 2013.
Applications should be sent by email to Professor Nina Reynolds (Chair of the Academy of Marketing Research Committee) at firstname.lastname@example.org, on or before noon (GMT) on Friday 17th May 2013.
