Our goal is to develop the Center for Research and Social Progress into a substantial center of research capable of influencing how we see the long-term and function of the modern nation-state and the sustainable ability of the economy to serve society. We cannot solve every problem that exists, but we can be a part of that solution.

We are a non-profit research center and we operate on funded projects, consulting, and contributions. There are three ways to contribute to the activities and management of the Center for Research and Social Progress. All are welcome.

ONE: A General Contribution

This can be of any amount and will go toward the continuity of the center, expanding the center’s capacities. For example: crucial elements such as equipment, developing the website, updating research software/hardware, and additions to the academic library. Contributions can be one-time or fixed periodic contributions.

TWO: A Contribution to the CeRSP Internship Program

A one-time 5,000€ contribution will create a position at CeRSP for a English/Italian speaking graduate student in either Economics or Political Science to intern on one of CeRSP’s ongoing projects (see here). This contribution will be a stipend for the intern for 3 months of work (1000€/month, including a fixed travel reimbursement of 250€). The remainder of the contribution goes to support the intern’s CeRSP research project.

THREE: Contribute to a Specific CeRSP Project

Contributions to specific projects can be of any size. When we reach our goal, the project will start and all contributors will be notified and regularly updated!

See the list of CeRSP projects seeking funding.
