The Centre for Family and Population Research (CFPR) is inviting proposals for events to be funded for 2017-2018. In particular, we are looking for collaborative and innovative research events, such as conferences, workshops and roundtables, especially those of interdisciplinary nature. We are also looking to create synergy by assisting those with ideas, in finding like-minded indviduals with similar research interests across different disciplines.
The proposed events should deal with topics that are consistent with CFPR's main research themes which are:
Interested applicants should submit an application package consisting of:
All submissions and clarifications should be directed to Ms Zuraihah Mohamad at email@example.com.
The Centre for Family and Population Research (CFPR) is inviting proposals for its lunchtime seminar series. This is a regular event held by CFPR as a venue for faculty members, researchers and students working in the field of family and population studies, to present their projects (ongoing/completed) and exchange ideas for the advancement of research in the study of trends, determinants, and consequences of family and population changes, particularly in Asia.
To be considered, the proposals must examine issues that are consistent with CFPR's research themes: marriage and family, ageing and health, children and youth, migration, population dynamics, intergenerational relations, human capital, labour force, and gender. Interdisciplinary works are given preference.
The seminars approximately run for 90 minutes, including a 30-minute Q & A.
NUS applicants who are keen to present their own work should write and send a 200-word abstract to Ms Zuraihah Mohamad at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, NUS faculty members can recommend colleagues or collaborators from overseas institutions who may be interested to visit Singapore to present their work. Funding is available for a return airfare to Singapore using the most economical route, and accommodation for two nights at the NUS Visitor's Lodge or at an NUS corporate hotel depending on availability. A two-page CV of the proposed speaker, a 200-word abstract of the work, as well as the proposed date of the seminar should be sent to the email address mentioned above.
Selection will be done on a rolling basis.
