premio universidad loyola investigacion desarrollo 2024

Loyola University has been committed to development for more than 30 years, supporting research and scientific production on reality in all its dimensions. With this premise, the institution announces the opening of the 2024 call for the Loyola University Award for Research in Development Studies.

The main objective of this award is to promote and highlight outstanding research in Development Studies that encourages humane, inclusive and sustainable development characterized by solidarity.

The call aims to value scientific works addressing topics related to Development in general. Special attention will be given to priority areas such as inequality and poverty, climate change and green transition, governance and promotion of peace, global citizenship, effectiveness of development and cooperation policies.

What’s new in the 2024 edition

The Loyola Award celebrates its fifth edition. The current call brings some surprises. The main novelty is that eligible research works must necessarily be scientific articles published during the year 2023 in research journals.

Thus, the works no longer have to be unpublished, as in previous editions. However, submitted articles should not have been previously awarded, nor should they be pending publication.

Submit your research for the Loyola Award 2024

Participants in the call will have the opportunity to aspire to win the Loyola Award, consisting of a grant worth 2,000€ and a diploma in recognition of their work.

The deadline for submitting entries is 31 March 2024.

Further information on the call is available on the Loyola Award 2024 website.
