The EIB Institute has signed a new EIB research contract with Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

The STAREBEI research grant on  «Analysing the influence of EU support on PPPs’ performance» will last one year from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.

This is the second STAREBEI research contract signed for the year 2019 and the fourth with Politécnica de Madrid (2014 Understanding the key drivers for road freight transport decoupling in Europe, 2012 Road Infrastructure Design for Optimizing Sustainability and 2011 Energy efficiency in ultra-broadband next generation access networks). Five contracts were signed in 2018 with Politecnico di Milano, Luxembourg’s Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), European University Institute, SOAS University of London and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.

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, 47 junior researchers from 34 universities in 12 European countries have benefited from the STAREBEI programme.
