Seed fund

The alliance offers staff members the opportunity to explore new interdisciplinary connections between the partner institutions. A Seed Fund has been set up for small-scale initiatives such as preparing for an external grant application, developing a new course, organising an event or setting up collaboration with social partners.

Three rounds

Each year there will be three opportunities to apply for seed money. Deadlines are 1 March, 1 July and 1 November. In each round funds are available to award three applications.
