European University – Calls for Innovative Research Proposals (2022)


The European University is looking for innovative research proposals from the faculty and post-doctoral researchers in CIVICA universities (Bocconi University, CEU, EUI, Hertie, LSE, Sciences Po, SNSPA, SSE).

This is a good chance to submit proposals for seed funding to apply to larger grants.

Sponsoring Agency: European University

Type of Fund: Grant

Deadline: January 10, 2022


Project ideas should be related but not limited to CIVICA’s four research themes:

  • Societies in Transition, Crises of Earth
  • Democracy in the 21st Century
  • Europe Revisited
  • Data-Driven Technologies for the Social Sciences

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.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Collaborative research projects – each proposal should be developed and submitted by a research team consisting of members from a minimum of two (2) CIVICA universities.
  • It strongly encourages applications from teams comprised of three (3) or more CIVICA partner institutions.
  • Faculty and researchers (post-doctoral or other) from CIVICA universities are eligible to apply.
  • Principal Investigators (PIs) must be permanent faculty at one (1) of the CIVICA universities at the time of submitting the application; other team members should have contractual relationships with a CIVICA university until the end of the project.
  • Research teams can include non-CIVICA members, too, but only CIVICA faculty/researchers are financed.
