The Circle U. European University Alliance is launching a call to academics, researchers and students by inviting them to apply for funding for collaborative projects to shape the future of the alliance. Apply by November 30, 2022.

Circle U. European University Alliance: Université Paris Cité, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, King’s College, London, UCLouvain, University of Oslo, Aarhus University, University of Belgrade, Université of Pisa and Université of Vienna.


The objective of the Circle U. seed funding scheme is to provide academics, researchers and students with opportunities to develop projects across the alliance, by strengthening and driving bottom-up initiatives. By funding smaller-scale, time-limited, bottom-up projects, Circle U. university alliance aims to facilitate the initiation of long-term collaborative activities.  Through this call, the alliance aspires to build up cooperation with associated partners and to boost mobility.


The 2022 call is open to students, academics and research staff from all disciplines and levels. All the information is available here.

Applicants can apply together with partners from at least 3 Circle U. universities to propose innovative projects ranging from seminars, workshops, joint modules, courses and programmes to joint research activities. If you are a student, your project could contribute to reinforcing student democracy and student engagement, disseminating Circle U. among all students, supporting new learning and training activities, or organizing cultural activities across Circle U.
