IMISCOE Seed Funding for research clusters - Call for Proposals - Deadline: December 1st.

IMISCOE encourages scholars from the network to explore new opportunities for research, collaboration and publications. Therefore, it provides seed funding to the development of new research (by developing research proposals), joint publications or other activities around specific topics or new niches of research.


Existing successful research clusters and standing committees are also encouraged to apply if they can clearly identify why further support from IMISCOE is needed for new activities. For more information on IMISCOE standing committees and research clusters, see
