Leave a comment

Nuffield Foundation have launched two new funding schemes, which now are open to applications.

Economic Advantage and Disadvantage

This will fund projects that examine the distribution of all aspects of individual and household economic well-being, from poverty and benefits to wealth and savings. They are also interested in the factors that drive them, from labour markets to tax policies. Another priority will be work that looks at the causal role played by economic disadvantage and advantage on both economic and non-economic outcomes.

Finances of Ageing

This will fund projects that examine aspects of finance, economics, and transfers related to individual and population ageing. They are interested in the level and distribution of resources and outcomes, both across and within groups. They will also fund projects that examine the effects of policy changes or implementation, such as changing pension policy, changing policies on the finances of social care or other policies related to inter-generational transfers.
