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.
