UNIST: SEA-EU Call for proposals for funding collaborative research and innovations

Thanks to the support of the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education, the University of Split launches a call for proposals for funding collaborative research and innovations. The aim of this call is to gather scientists and researchers of the SEA-EU Alliance and help them initiate collaboration and establish bases for new joint competitive projects.  The applied collaborative research project should reflect the values of the SEA-EU Mission Statement and include scientists/researchers from the University of Split and at least one institution from the other SEA-EU university.

The interested applicants should fill in the electronic form available at www.unist.hr and send it by email to seaeu@unist.hr. The deadline for submission of proposals is 12:00 (Brussel’s time) on 15 April 2021. In addition, the applicants should enclose a letter of intent on the cooperation of the research group with another partner institution. For more information, please contact Ivana Jadrić, technical manager of the SEA-EU at the University of Split (ivana.jadric@unist.hr)

About the funded projects

UBO: Call for the creation of Research Partnerships

In 2020, and thanks to national funding from the French National Agency for Research, UBO has launched a support scheme designed to initiate collaborations within the SEA-EU alliance. The objective was to support the emergence of new cooperation between researchers from UBO with some from the 5 partner universities around the central themes of SEA-EU:

  • Sustainable development, global change and resilience
  • European identity and interculturality.

The 1st call (closed in August 2020) has given support to 9 projects (see project details), covering the 2 SEA-EU themes and the 4 UBO research axes, and allowing to initiate new links with the 5 partner universities. The 2nd call has added 2 new projects to the list. The third call is open until September 2021 and will support up to 10 new partnerships.
