Uppsala - Durham Seedcorn Fund

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Uppsala - Durham Seedcorn Fund - 2019

Building on their collaborations through the Matariki Network of Universities, Durham and Uppsala Universities wish to strengthen their bilateral ties and have developed a joint seedcorn fund to source and support joint research. Through a competitive process, Durham and Uppsala Universities will jointly advertise, select and fund research projects to the value of 10,000- 25,000. Successful research projects are expected to result in third-party funding applications.

Parameters of the scheme are outlined below:


  • Applicants/ PIs must be academic staff at either Durham or Uppsala Universities at any stage of their careers, and can include faculty from cooperating institutes.
