Dear fellow researchers,

According to the last global FT ranking for research, IE Business School occupies the 62th place in the world. This is a very good result given that we have gained 30 places in 4 years. But we still have room for improvement if we want to raise the research ranking up to the level of our overall ranking that places IE Business School at number 8 worldwide.

The external environment presents some serious challenges, especially in terms of funding. The funding for the Spanish national plan for Research and Development has been  cut dramatically in the past three years and is now back to the 2006 level. So on one hand we are very happy to announce that this year again we have been very successful in our bids for national funding for research. Four projects have been funded, led by Julio de Castro, Margarita Mayo, Cristina Cruz and Daniel Blake. However on the other hand we have to notice the serious cut in the amount of funding received through these grants.

But the entrepreneurial spirit of IE prompts us to react and look for alternative ways to secure funding for our researchers. So we are very pleased to inform you in this newsletter about two new grants obtained from the Ramón Areces Foundation for JM Goh and Nieves Carrera, the prize awarded to Garen Markarian by the Fundacion de Estudios Financieros (Spain) and one new grant from CIMA (UK) for Paolo Quattrone. Together with the funding achieved from the EU, these new grants put the overall level of funding achieved to a level comparable with previous years.

Our success in obtaining external funds for research is well deserved by looking at the constant flow of publications and research activities that we are able to present to you in this as well as in previous newsletters.

I want to take this opportunity again to thank all the staff of the Research Office for theur tremendous work. Without them none of this would be possible.

Best wishes,

Marco Trombetta

Vice-Dean of Research IE Business School
