The Institute supports research through grants:

EIBURS (EIB University Research Sponsorship) is a programme that provides research grants of up to € 100 000 a year, for a period of three years, to research centres working on topics of major interest to the EIB Group (EIB and EIF). Thirty EIBURS research projects led by 25 universities and research centres from nine countries have been financed so far.

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 co-tutor. To date, 60 young researchers from 39 universities in 13 European countries have benefited from the STAREBEI programme.

We do not offer any type of scholarship, including PhD sponsorships.
