The Department of Economic Research & Development, and Strategic Counseling of the Israel Securities Authority encourages submission of proposals for research on topics having implications for capital market policy in Israel generally, and topics linked to the ISA's activities and goals specifically.
Among these topics: capital market development and removal of economic and regulatory failures, protecting the investing public, increasing trust of investors and raising public awareness of capital market issues.
Researchers whose research proposals will be chosen to participate in the program will conduct the research in full cooperation of the ISA's Economics Department and will receive financial support.
The research grants range between 5,000 NIS and 40,000 NIS.
Submission of a research proposal is carried out by filling out the Request Form for Participation in Research Program, and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The proposals will be approved by committee of the ISA according to the following considerations, among others:
*Importance of the topic and significance of its implications;
*The ability to derive regulatory applications from the research;
*Suitability of the researcher's expertise and education to conduct the study;
*The feasibility of concluding the research within a period of less than two years.
The ISA will make use of research conducted within the framework of this program at its discretion.
Participation in the research program involves signing an engagement contract with the ISA.
* This proposal is not made based on a tender, and the ISA is not obligated to prepare a tender for this purpose. The ISA reserves the right to use its discretion to choose the proposals which are found to be most suitable to the requirements and needs of the ISA, and not necessarily the first proposals to be submitted or those that require a lower investment cost from the ISA.
