CMF announces its July 2023 call for research projects

July 3, 2023 - The Financial Market Commission (CMF) calls the academic community to submit research projects on issues of interest to the CMF. This initiative aims to contribute to analysis and public debate with new approaches on topics related to the Commission's mandate while strengthening the technical and professional capacities of CMF researchers.

The Commission invites independent researchers or researchers attached to higher education institutions or study centers to submit project proposals between July 3 and 30, 2023. Research lines defined for this call include topics relevant to the CMF's institutional mandate: stability of the financial system; protection of clients and depositors; and market development.

Projects and their authors must comply with the conditions and requirements detailed in Annex 1 of the CMF's Policy for Publishing Non-Regular Documents and Institutional Reports. They must include at least one CMF researcher (to be defined by the Commission). The final product is at least one document of quality comparable to academic journal articles.

For consideration and authorization of the CMF Editorial Committee, researchers should send a proposal to with their projects' terms of reference and plan of activities, as detailed below:

  1. Terms of Reference: This document contains the research team's work proposal. It includes the project's motivation; its objectives and questions; identification of databases to be used; description of methodologies; CVs of the team members; and a statement of compliance with requirements and conditions of the research agreement with external parties described in Annex 1 of the CMF's Policy for Publishing Non-Regular Documents and Institutional Reports. Participants should review Annex 1 due to it being amended since the last research call.
  2. Plan of Activities: This document contains programmed activities and their distribution over time. Direct stakeholders are to include milestones for progress reporting and deliverable documents in the plan, which also must specify a project completion date.

The Editorial Committee will evaluate proposals based on the Commission's priorities, as well as its institutional and strategic resources, as primary criteria. Every project requires the participation of an internal researcher, a member of the CMF staff selected because of their specific experience and the fulfillment of institutional goals.

Applicants will be notified of their projects' approval or rejection within 20 business days after the call for projects closes. Should a project be approved, external researchers must sign an agreement to carry it out. Its specific conditions are detailed in Annex 1 of the Publication Policy for Non-Regular Documents and Institutional Reports.
