Call for proposals: Global Transformations and Governance Challenges Initiative
The Leiden Focus Area on Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (GTGC) invites proposals for seed grants of up to €10.000 for the purpose of developing new interdisciplinary team research in this area. Applications must involve colleagues from at least two (and preferably more) Leiden University faculties. Thus, these grants do not support projects focused on one person’s research nor predominantly inter-university projects.
The GTGC initiative aims to advance knowledge on how we govern – and could govern – the changes of the contemporary global world. These transformations include, but are not limited to, global developments around ecology, economy, identity, law, the states-system, technology, values, and violence.
Seed grants can focus on the building of networks, the organization of seminars and workshops, the execution of a pilot study, the completion of publications, the development of grant proposals, etc.
How to apply
Applications should comprise: (a) project description using the application form; (b) short CVs of the contributing researchers; and (c) a budget with carefully costed and justified items to a maximum of €10.000.
