Apply now: Una Europa seed funding call

26 March 2024

Interested in pursuing a collaborative research, education or outreach project with colleagues across Europe? Apply by 28 June 2024 for up to €39,000 in seed funding from Una Europa.

Una Europa Seed Funding aims to kick-start collaboration between alliance partner universities and 'plant a seed' that can eventually attract external funding. The 2024 call has a strong emphasis on early-career researchers. It is also:

  • Bottom-up, meaning topics of the research proposals are determined by the researchers themselves.
  • Open to interdisciplinary proposals, as well as those involving wider university staff such as established researchers, professional staff, and students. 

Who can participate?

Established academics and early-career researchers from the 11 Una Europa partner universities can apply. The seed funding project team must involve:

  • One coordinator at the Una Europa university coordinating this project;
  • At least one academic lead per university, at a minimum of three additional Una Europa universities;
  • At least one early-career researcher at each participating partner university.
