2.1 Student Paulo Augusto Meyer Mattos Nascimento Split-Site Doctoral Program 

The debate on income (ECR) as a more efficient and fair way of addressing these issues. This is a loan modality with payments linked to the person's income and charged by the same mechanisms that tax income or that collect social security contributions, with successful applications in some countries. There are also in the literature theoretical constructions that refer to tax solutions (graduate tribute) and solutions via equity instruments (contracts and options of human capital) to allow the individual to postpone the payment of the Their training costs. There are few possibilities discussed in Brazil, but which tend to enter the public agenda facing the fiscal problems of the Brazilian state and the deterioration of economic indicators of the country. The National Congress proposes to amend the Constitution to establish collections in public institutions of higher education or compulsory contributions from the graduates of the system. Public funding for private higher education has been constantly rediscussed, resulting in constant changes in the rules of the Student Financing Fund (FIES).
The research to be done at Australian National University seeks to advance the treatment and use of sectional microdata and panel data for study of alternatives for financing higher studies with different levels of public subsidies.

2.2 Student Geidson Uilson Seixas Santana Split-Site Doctoral Program

The aim of this study is to analyze the effects of “Bolsa Familia” program on infant mortality in Salvador, considering the possible spillover effects and the structure of local public services. Impact assessment techniques will be used.
The sandwich doctoral period will contribute to development of research in area of evaluation of public policies, considering space and public structure of goods and services as important elements of analysis and impact assessment.
In addition, the split-site doctoral program will provide interaction with a large research center with a strong contribution in the area. In addition, between Faculty of Economics of UFBA and Centre for Health Economics – CHE of University of York (UK) will enable new research fronts and exchange with long-term frontier researchers. During the research period in the CHE the orientation of this work will be on the supervision of Professor Dr. Marc Suhrcke who holds a degree in economics from the University of Trier (Germany), post-graduated in international economic relations from the University of Konstanz ( Germany) and PhD in economics from Hamburg University. Professor Suhrcke has extensive experience in health economics. The main part of his research revolves around a series of economic and econometric aspects of public health in low-and middle-income countries.
In turn, the aforementioned aspects denote the potential of this research plan for the increase in the research and Education network, and with the use of the most new techniques in the area of impact assessment of public policies. Similarly, it is verified that not only will an international partnership be established, but there is a possibility of expanding existing national partnerships. Moreover, by the aforementioned mechanisms, the results have a wide dissemination potential. Finally, it is observed the relevance for the economic development and social welfare of Brazil in the medium and long term to carry out the impact assessment of public interventions, because it allows to verify whether they occur and how the effects of interventions and Through which transmission mechanisms these effects are generated or potentiated.
