CeFEO Research Grant

In 2019 CeFEO has initiated a Research Grant Program for supporting for 2 years a JIBS faculty member with a Ph.D. in conducting a research project in line with the Centre’s focus areas of family business and ownership.

The expected outcome of the CeFEO investments is the development of an application to external research grants on the topic and at least one publication ABS 3 (or above) from each grant recipient. The recipients are expected to be actively engaged with the center’s activities for the entire duration of the grant.

As of June 2021, the four grants are regularly payed by CeFEO to the recipients of the Grant.

The recipients are:
