The University of Helsinki, Aalto University and KU Leuven (Belgium) have forged a strategic partnership to explore research collaboration possibilities. They now open a call for applications for exploratory seed funding across all disciplines.

The call is open from 15 May 2024 to 10 September 2024 (at 17:00 CET/18:00 EET). 

The exploratory seed funding scheme supports initiatives that establish new or intensify existing research collaboration. It is meant for exploring research collaboration possibilities, e.g. by the organisation of joint workshops and for stimulating researchers to join forces to embark on joint research projects.

The call is open for researchers at the University of Helsinki, Aalto University and KU Leuven. Eligible consortia must include researchers from all three institutions. Applications are submitted by the main PI, who acts as consortium leader, in the name of all three organisations. 

The total available funding is up to 450 000 €. The budget allows for the granting of up to fifteen exploration projects of 12 months and maximum 30 000 € for each consortium (of which maximum 10 000 € at each partner).

Detailed descriptions of the call deadline, eligibility criteria, application, and evaluation process are available on the call page.
