IUR call for seed grants open
CALL FOR SEED GRANTS AND SEED GRANTS XL 2022 PROPOSALS:
The Institute for Urban Research launches a call for seed grant proposals, 2022 (seed grants worth 25,000 SEK plus seed grants XL worth 100,000 SEK). We do not have a maximum number of grants in mind. We will try to meet demand as far as the budget allows.
The aim of the seed grants is to foster research cooperation amongst IUR members together with urban researchers outside the IUR. They should create a platform that facilitates work with tangible research output such as publications, research proposals for external funding, workshops/seminars/conferences leading to future cooperation, outreach activities together with societal actors, exhibitions, artistic interventions, pilot studies to start up new projects or research proposals, amongst other possibilities.
Any constellation of applicants is possible, as long as the main applicant is an IUR member. It is recommendable to have one or more junior researchers (PhD students, master students in a research internship) in the team. The applying team can include non-academic partners. Support for conference participation is possible if the applicant organizes a paper session that may lead to an edited book, a theme issue in a journal, or other tangible output.
How to apply
Send a project description of max. 600 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. The proposal should include:
· The purpose of the proposal
· The timeline of the proposal
· The expected tangible outcomes
· How the proposal adds value to the Institute of Urban Research
· A detailed budget
The deadline for handing in the seed grant proposal is 1 December 2021. A decision will be made in December 2021.
SEED GRANTS XL
Applications for seed grants XL follow the same instructions as above but need to include a short justification as to why the proposed activity cannot be organized within the budget of an ordinary seed grant. The maximum word length for seed grant XL applications is 750.
