Research

The UEFA Research Grant Programme is designed to establish a series of awards of up to €20,000 to support the valuable work of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers studying European football. By shedding new light on football and the myriad ways in which it interrelates with society as a whole, quality research can help the members of the European football family fulfil their mission and reach more informed decisions.
