Criteria for the award of the grant will include likely impact on forecasting methods and business applications. Consideration will be given to new researchers in the field and whether supplementary funding is possible.

 

Applications must include:

  • Description of the project (max. 4 pages)
  • Letter of support from the home institution where the researcher is based.
  • Brief (max. 4 page) c.v.

The IIF-SAS grant was created in 2002 by the IIF, with financial support from the SAS Institute, in order to promote research on forecasting principles and practice. The fund provided amounts of US $10,000 per year, which is divided to support research in the two basic aspects of forecasting: development of theoretical results and new methods, and practical applications with real-world comparisons.
