Seed Grants


In September 2014 seed grants of up to €30,000 each were awarded to 38 applicants from a field of more than 500 candidates. The seed grants were intended to enable the applicants to build or extend the international, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary teams needed to prepare a strong proposal in response to the main call for proposals which was issued in December 2014.

The seed grants ran from September 2014 to March 2015.
