The EIB Institute has signed a new STAREBEI research grant contract with Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne on  “Determinants of firms’ financing conditions and investment policies: new evidence from survey data”. The research will last one year.

This is the fifth STAREBEI research contract signed this year following those with Luxembourg’s LIST, European University Institute, SOAS University of London and Università degli Studi di Trieste.

STAREBEI (STAges de REcherche BEI-EIB research internships) is a programme that provides grants to universities in order to finance junior researchers carrying out research projects proposed by the EIB Group (EIB and EIF) under the joint supervision of a university tutor and an EIB or EIF co-tutor.

To date, 44 young researchers from 33 universities in 12 European countries have benefited from the STAREBEI programme.
