NCRM International Visitor Exchange Scheme (IVES)
The NCRM International Visitor Exchange Scheme (IVES) provides for incoming and outgoing visiting scholars awards. The incoming visiting scholar awards are for noted overseas experts working at the forefront of key methodological areas to visit a UK centre of methodological excellence in social sciences.
The outgoing visiting scholar awards will enable early and mid-career researchers from the UK in the social sciences to visit a centre of methodological excellence outside the UK.
The scheme was launched in 2015. We run one round of IVES a year. All IVES projects can be viewed here.
Announcing the 2017/2018 International Visitor Exchange Scheme Awards
NCRM is pleased to announce the results of the 2017/2018 IVES funding scheme. Three scholarships were awarded. The first one goes to Professor Rachel Gibson (University of Manchester) who will be visiting Professor Jonathon Nagler (New York University) to investigate new methods and data for conducting election studies and measuring public opinion.
The second award is for Dr Alasdair Jones (London School of Economics) who will be visiting Associate Professor Jennifer Curti and Professor Peter Davis (University of Auckland) to review and synthesise the uses and applications of qualitative research methods in policy evaluations using observational designs.
And Dr Alexandru Cernat (University of Manchester) receives the third award to visit Nicole Watson (University of Melbourne) and simulate the long term effects of an adaptive fieldwork design in longitudinal surveys.
The outcomes of these projects will be promoted via the NCRM website. There will be another round of IVES funding announced in early 2018.
