SIPRI joins two new academic networks

SIPRI has joined the Training and Mobility Network for the Economic Analysis of Conflict (TAMNEAC) as an associated partner institution. 

TAMNEAC provides training to young professionals and researchers tackling the challenges associated with mass violent conflict in developing countries. It is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded by the 7th Framework Programme (7FP) of the European Commission and coordinated by incoming SIPRI Director, Prof. Tilman Brück.

Starting from January 2013, TAMNEAC fellows will be able to join SIPRI for short-term secondments. For more information visit the TAMNEAC website.

SIPRI is also a participating institution in the Transatlantic Post-Doc Fellowship for International Relations and Security (TAPIR).

Fellowships are open to candidates who have recently received their doctorate in social and political sciences or economics and whose research focuses on international relations and/or international peace and security issues.

The fellowships, which last 24 months, will enable recipients to spend three eight-month stays at research institutions or think tanks participating in the programme.

TAPIR is co-funded by the Marie Curie Action COFUND within the FP7.
