ECB announces 2022 Legal Research Programme

The European Central Bank has issued a call for papers for its Legal Research Programme 2022, an annual scholarship programme launched in 2008 to foster analysis of areas of law relevant to the ECB’s statutory tasks and to establish closer contacts with scholars.

Applicants must be doctoral candidates or recently graduated from their doctoral studies, or well-established academics. The scholarship is conditional upon the research paper being accepted for publication in an internationally renowned and peer-reviewed academic journal by 1 November 2023.

Applicants who are awarded a scholarship are required to conduct research during 2022 on one of the following research topics:

  1. Implications of artificial intelligence and machine learning for prudential banking supervision;
  2. Liability in relation to decision-making in EU composite procedures;
  3. Discretion of EU institutions;
  4. Central bank cooperation at a time of global challenges and national solutions;
  5. Legal framework for the application of sanctions by the ECB;
  6. The increasing recourse to cloud services by the financial system;
  7. Central banks and inequality;
  8. Threats to the rule of law and the integrity of the EU banking and financial system;
  9. Criminal law and banking union: towards a criminal fragmentation of the banking union, or call for a single criminal law framework in EU financial law?;

The deadline to submit applications is 30 January 2022. Applications must include, inter alia, a CV and a proposal for one of the research topics.
