UNIC Engaged Research Initiative 2023 Call


The UNIC Alliance is excited to announce the first Call for Engaged Research collaboration and project development. Engaged Research is a key plank of UNIC’s work, enabling researchers to tackle societal challenges by involving and engaging citizens, civil society, city authorities, and private businesses. It’s an interdisciplinary approach to creating knowledge not only for society but together with society.

For this, the new Seed Fund scheme offers small-scale support for developing engaged research collaboration and projects across all disciplines. This call is open to all faculty members (including research faculty) with the aim to

  • Coordinate a collaborative project (such as an application for external funding for research, development or innovation project)
  • Launch new collaboration between researchers from different UNIC universities (to implement an activity aimed at establishing a new collaborative initiative among UNIC partner universities that will help to develop a joint external grant afterward).
