The Executive Committee of the EAPP is happy to announce the first recipients of a new initiative, the EAPP Collaborative Research Grants. The aim of these €10,000 grants is to support for a period of 2 years novel and high-level collaborative personality research projects involving at least two early career researchers from at least two different countries or distinct within-country regions. The recipients of the 2023 EAPP Collaborative Research Grants are:
- Dr. Ana Blasco Belled (University of Lleida) for the project Disentangling the dynamical
interactions between personality and subjective well-being: The case of extraversion and
- Dr. Marco Di Sarno (University of Milano-Bicocca) for the project The Role of Pathological Narcissism in Dynamics of Interpersonal Behavior and Affect in Psychotherapy
Congratulations to Drs. Blasco-Belled and Di Sarno!

Purpose of the Grants
The aim of the grants is to support novel and high-level collaborative personality research projects involving at least two early career researchers (ECRs) from at least two different countries or distinct within-country regions.
Applications from researchers in countries/regions underrepresented in personality research are particularly welcome under this scheme. The EAPP will assess applications equally on their scientific merits, while also considering the gender and geographic diversity of applicants.
Grant Terms and Conditions
• Funds are available to support the direct research costs and dissemination of results.
• Applications should demonstrate that funds are sought for a clearly defined, discrete piece of research with an identifiable outcome on completion.
• Applications to organise a conference or workshop will not be considered; nor are grants intended solely to support conference or workshop attendance.
• Applications aimed at evaluating the robustness and cross-ethnocultural, cross-regional, or cross-research group replicability of specific empirical phenomena are particularly welcome under this scheme.
• The proposed project should meet Open Science and transparency policies, including pre-registration.
• While all types of competitive research proposals that fit the scope of this call will be considered, all else being equal, preference will be given to projects that feature original data collection.
• The project should lead to published work submitted for consideration by an EAPP journal—European Journal of Personality (EJP) or Personality Science (PS)—as grant awardees’ first choice as a registered report or a regular empirical manuscript.
• Successful grant awardees will be required to provide a final report at the end of the project.
