UEFA Research Grant Programme

Programme Info

Over the last few years UEFA has increasingly engaged with the academic community by establishing a series of initiatives that continue to provide research-based findings to help the European football family to reach more informed decisions. One such initiative is the UEFA Research Grant Programme.

Through this grant programme, UEFA is committed to supporting the ongoing work of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers investigating European football. UEFA’s core mission is to develop European football at all levels of the game and promote the principles of unity and solidarity. Therefore, by shedding new light on football and the myriad ways in which it interrelates with society as a whole, quality research can help UEFA to fulfil its mission. In addition to research in the social sciences, the programme is open to proposals in the field of medical sciences.

The UEFA Research Grant Programme is an excellent opportunity to encourage the work of both prominent and aspiring researchers working within the field of European football.
