Four grants awarded to academics in the UK and in Italy

The Stone Centre at UCL will support research on different aspects of wealth concentration and inequality

During the 2022/2023 academic year, the Stone Centre at UCL ran an open call to apply for a research grant of up to £50,000. We received 77 applications – a third from women, and two thirds from non-UK countries. We're excited to share the winners of a grant:

  • Stefano Caria, Professor of Economics at the University of Warwick, UK: Assessing the feasibility of job loss insurance expansion in Ethiopia,
  • Erika Deserranno, Professor of Economics at Bocconi University, Italy: Remote care for remote areas: the impact of telehealth in rural India,
  • David Hope, Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Political Economy, King's College London: Inequality perceptions and preferences for carbon taxation,
  • Clara Martínez-Toledano, Assistant Professor of Financial Economics, Imperial College London: High-net-worth individuals in private capital markets.

Their work will contribute to fulfilling the mission of the Stone Centre to advance research on the causes and consequences of wealth concentration and inequality. The projects plan to cover several of the Centre’s research focus areas – with a stronger emphasis on the ‘Horizontal inequalities’, ‘Economic mobility’ and ‘Measurement’ areas.

Warmest congratulations to the awardees, and welcome to the Stone Centre!

> We'll run another open call for research grants during the 2024/2025 academic year. Don't miss out! Follow the Stone Centre at UCL on Twitter.
