The 4EU+ Alliance invites proposals for the second round of SEED4EU+

The 4EU+ Alliance is pleased to announce the launch of the second round of the SEED4EU+ initiative, a programme dedicated to providing seed funding for innovative projects that enhance cooperation among the 4EU+ member universities.

With a particular emphasis on research activities, this call seeks to fund the implementation of novel ideas and contribute to the realisation of the 4EU+ mission. Academic staff at the eight member universities of the Alliance are encouraged to submit joint, innovative proposals that will significantly impact the strengthening of 4EU+, our strategic partnership, and broaden the engagement of all 4EU+ university communities in developing our One Comprehensive Research-Intensive European University.
