Resolution
 

The aim of the call was to support research projects on the social reality of young people in Portugal, using quantitative survey data in social sciences.

The call was open to survey-based research projects that could complete the entire path from hypotheses to conclusions within a maximum period of 8 months and present the results of the research in an outreach article to be published by the Social Observatory of the ”la Caixa” Foundation.

The selection process of the proposals received was conducted by academic experts linked to the field of social sciences. The projects were evaluated without the evaluators knowing the authorship or affiliation of the concurrent researchers.
