The Marketing Science Institute (MSI) is pleased to announce two new research proposal competitions. We encourage submissions from scholars outside the United States as well as those located in the US.
1: Call for Research Proposals on Mobile Platforms, Location-based Services, and Their Impact on Customers
This MSI research competition aims to generate new thinking on the implications of mobile platforms and services for marketing practice. MSI will award 10-12 research grants ranging from $5,000-$25,000 to support high-quality research on the impact of mobile platforms and location-based services on consumers and markets. Funding may be applied to the purchase of data. Proposals must be received by April 30, and funding decisions will be announced by June 30, 2013. Details are available on the MSI website at: http://www.msi.org/research/index.cfm?id=352
2: Call for Research Proposals to Promote Thought Leadership on the Sales Profession
Co-sponsored by MSI and the Sales Excellence Institute (SEI) at the University of Houston, this research proposal competition is intended to promote thought leadership on the sales profession. We anticipate awarding 4-7 grants ranging from $5,000-$25,000 to support high quality research on critical questions in this area. A favorable bias will be given to research proposals that focus on interesting substantive questions and provide managerial insight. Winning proposals will be invited to present their research at the next Thought Leadership on the Sales Profession Conference, which will be held at Columbia University in the spring of 2014. This conference intends to showcase the best practices taking place in the field today and to promote discussion between leading academics and senior practitioners. Proposals must be received by April 15, and funding decisions will be announced in June. Details are available on the MSI website at: http://www.msi.org/research/index.cfm?id=353
