Research projects include studies and analyzes on a specific topic of interest, carried out by research teams or individual researchers. Projects have a Main Researcher (MR) who is responsible for the results and budget of the project, which may last from one to three years.
Results of the research are communicated through publications and activities related to the project, in addition to a final report document.
Projects subsidized by the Institute must address any aspect of American Studies or intercultural relations between North America and Spain, giving priority to projects with a multidisciplinary approach.
- Contributing to the scientific advancement and training of new researchers in their natural sphere of action;
- Providing a platform for scientific content and a forum for analysis and discussion of America, especially on the United States, with an academic and social outreach.
Every year in the Annual Research Plan, the Plan Innova USA, specifies the priorities of this call and its financing.
