2024 Calls for projects

<< Back to 4EU+ HOME


To support our academic community in broadening its creative horizons, the SEED4EU+ call provides funding to out-of-the-box initiatives that do not fit into customary calls for project proposals. The Principal Investigator (PI) should submit the proposal, report after project completion, coordinate the project, and monitor its implementation with the support of local coordinators. Selected projects can run for a period of up to 12 months and receive funding of up to 50,000 euros.

The PI and the local coordinators must hold at least a PhD degree and an employment contract at one of the 4EU+ member universities covering the entire duration of the envisioned project and reporting period.

Deadline:  30 September 2024
