Seed fund

The EWUU Alliance offers a Seed Fund tailored for inter- and transdisciplinary initiatives. This includes projects geared towards laying the groundwork for initial research, enabling the pursuit of larger grant applications, or activities that bolster the preparation for such applications.

How it works

Several times a year, the EWUU’s institutes orchestrate seed calls, centered around their core research themes. Members across the four alliance institutions are invited to submit innovative proposals. Per seed call, several projects are selected for seed funding to propel their research endeavors.

The primary objective is to foster and provide financial backing for collaborative ventures that transcend disciplines within the four alliance institutions. We highly encourage you to submit proposals that involve researchers from multiple alliance institutions. Detailed guidelines outlining this objective can be found within the terms of each seed call.

How to get seed funding

Each year, several seed calls are released, that are open to research proposals. Proposals are submitted by completing the application form, which solicits details about the applicants, the main research objectives, a project plan, and the requested budget. Subsequently, several research proposals are chosen for seed funding, based on the available budget.
