IRSGforResearch, an initiative by International Rubber Study Group (IRSG) sponsored by R1 International, has called for papers for the award for best rubber-related economic research. This award aims to promote high-quality research on emerging issues in the global rubber sector.
The research paper should cover a relevant topic related to the broader sustainability framework and sustainable development of the rubber sector. While candidates have freedom to choose their own topics, provided they are relevant for the rubber sector, preference will be given to those papers addressing research questions that fall under the thematic focus chosen by IRSG for this year: “How can rubber smallholders achieve sustainable development through rubber farming.”
The IRSGforResearch is open to all economists and researchers in social sciences who are in the process of completing a PhD or who have completed their degree in the last five years, with proven interest in the area of rubber economics. The candidate should submit a paper in English which should not exceed 15,000 words.
All submissions should be sent to [email protected] not later than December 13, 2019. Results will be announced on March 2, 2020. The winner of the award will be presented with SGD3,000 and an Award Certificate.
