Project Description

This project seeks to examine the factors that influence the shape and success of different cross-border cooperation programmes in Europe, as funded through the EU. Some of these are much more successful than others, in terms of achieving the programme aims, or simply in terms of financial progress. Some of them feature specialist instruments such as ’small projects funds’, while others do not. What factors explain these discrepancies?
Candidates who speak several European languages, who would be comfortable carrying out interviews in other European countries, and who are happy to work with spreadsheets would be most suited for this project.

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
