EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

Research Knowledge Transfer Scheme

Announcement regarding the handling of EASP Research Grants during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please see here.


The Research Knowledge Transfer Scheme (RKTS) is intended to promote any initiative that specifically serves EASP members from regions where access to scientific information, facilities and/or funding is scarce compared to European standards. Under this scheme, support may be granted for initiatives involving visits from either single researchers or groups. Funding would support the visit of the scholar(s), which would involve some form of teaching, interaction or development activities (e.g., lectures, workshops, skills training, consultation meetings) directed at local social psychologists at any career stage, but in which involvement of junior and postgraduate researchers would be encouraged where possible. Given the nature of this scheme, and the focus on teaching, training and development, the period of stay would be expected to run over several days (i.e. it would constitute more than a single colloquium on the visitors’ research, although this could form a welcome part of, or addition to the program for the visit). The grant may also be used to promote the development of local networks among social psychologists within regions that do not have local associations of social psychology.


  • Full members of the Association who are organizing the above initiatives aimed at social psychologists from specific regions.
  • Any member may be awarded a maximum of one RKTS grant within a 5 year period


  • Academic need of the region or regions from which the applicant comes or in support of which the initiative is organized (to be evaluated by the Executive Committee).
  • Scientific and organizational merits of the proposal. Enough details of the proposed program of activities should be provided to allow an evaluation of the scientific and educational merits of the proposal and its capacity to realize the intended aims.


The grant will vary according to the characteristics of the proposed initiative, but will not exceed € 3500.
