Sciences Po "SAB" Projects

Since 2009 Sciences Po has been financing internal research projects selected by a board made up exclusively of prominent, internationally recognised academics, external to SciencesPo. This board – the « Scientific Advisory Board » (SAB) – is entrusted every year to evaluate several dozen research projects proposed by SciencesPo’s faculty and researchers.

Sciences Po called for two types of proposals :

  • projects requiring « seed money » in order to help prepare applications for external funding
  • fundamental research projects that are innovative in nature or « disruptive » in their approach to a classic question.

Every year since 2012, the Department's projects have been among the 15 or so internal research projects selected for financial support by the SAB.
