Ingvild Almås awarded ERC grant
Ingvild Almås, one of FAIR's PIs, has been granted an ERC Consolidator Grant for research on global inequality.
The ERC Consolidator Grant is one of the most prestigious grants for individual researchers from the European Research Council (ERC). It is awarded to researchers who have come a long way in their careers to help them consolidate their research groups and pursue groundbreaking research.
The project is titled "From Household Allocations to Global Inequality: New Methods, Facts and Policy Implications" and is a five year project. Almås will study household allocation of resources and household decision making with a global outlook combined with an in-depth focus on households in Tanzania.
