CIVICA Opens Call for Research Proposals 2022

The second CIVICA Call for Research Proposals is now open.

Faculty and (post-doctoral) researchers at CIVICA universities (Bocconi, CEU, EUI, Hertie, LSE, Sciences Po, SNSPA, SSE) are invited to submit proposals for seed funding to apply to larger grants.

The aim of the initiative is to help innovative research projects to take off the ground and foster new cooperation between CIVICA’s partner universities.

The call at a glance:

  • Each proposal should be developed and submitted by a research team consisting of members from a minimum of two CIVICA universities. Applications from teams comprised of three or more CIVICA partner institutions are strongly encouraged.
  • Projects that look for seed funding in the initial phase of a long-term project are eligible. Proposals should be clear about how they will lead to a fully-fledged research project and to a larger grant.
  • Project ideas should be related but not limited to CIVICA’s four research themes: Democracy in the 21st Century, Europe Revisited, Societies in Transition-Crises of Earth, and Data-Driven Technologies for Social Sciences.
  • Projects can officially start on 1 March 2022 and the spending deadline is 1 September 2022.
  • The call is financed from CIVICA’s Erasmus+ funds and partners’ own resources.
  • Application deadline: 10 January 2022, 12:00pm (CET)
