Uppsala–Durham Seedcorn Fund 2020
Building further on their collaborations through the Matariki Network of Universities, Durham and Uppsala Universities wish to strengthen their bilateral ties and have developed a joint seedcorn fund to source and support joint research. In January 2020 the second seedcorn call for applications opens. Extended application deadline to 8 May.
Through a competitive process, Durham and Uppsala Universities will jointly advertise, select and fund research projects to the value of € 10,000 - € 25,000.
Successful research projects are expected to result in third-party funding applications.
Parameters of the scheme are outlined below.
- Applicants/ PIs must be academic staff at either Durham or Uppsala Universities at any stage of their careers, and can include faculty from cooperating institutes.
- Additional external partners can be involved, however a strong argument should be made where contribution exceeds 20%.
- Applicants must have expertise in the applied projects.
- Projects incorporating early career researchers or postgraduate students are encouraged.
Competition opens on Monday 27 January 2020.
Completed applications should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by midday (UK time) 8 May 2020.
