About ACES

FMG Research Priority Area

ACES has been designated a faculty Research Priority Area by the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.

Research Theme groups

Within the FMG, ACES organized its activities in three Research Themes:

ACES Migration Network

The ACES Migration Network aims to promote interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration among UvA scholars in political science, sociology, anthropology, and geography, planning & international development who work on migration and migrants broadly defined: ranging from the politics of immigration, integration, and identity to migration drivers and trajectories, and from integration dynamics to ethnic and racial diversity. Furthermore, we hope to foster ties with colleagues in the Law and Humanities department as well as with academics and non-academics outside of UvA. Finally, we aim to strengthen the visibility of migration research at UvA.

Funding Opportunities FMG

Funding opportunities for ACES affiliates.

ACES provides several funding opportunities for its affiliates to support research or to organize events. 

  • Academic Conferences

    Academic conferences are one-day events where a topic with a distinct European dimension is addressed. They typically bring together a combination of ACES affiliates and external speakers. Proposals that cut across ACES Research Themes are welcome. Cooperation with other UvA faculties and external partners is encouraged, as is co-sponsorship and co-funding. A conference should aim at producing tangible outcomes, such as a proposal for a special issue of a journal or an edited book. Deadline for applications for conferences to be organised in 2020 is 27 November 2019.

  • Research support

    Through its support for research on contemporary Europe, ACES aims to provide an opportunity to build and strengthen the research profile of its affiliated academic staff at the FMG. Research support can be requested to achieve one of the following objectives:

    1. To prepare an application for an ERC, NWO and other major individual grant: a Seed Grant
    2. To advance research related to one of ACES’s three Research Themes or the Migration Network: a Thematic Research Grant

    Deadline for applications for research support for 2020 is 27 November 2019.

  • PhD and postdoc research support

    ACES supports direct research related costs (e.g. visiting a conference, transcriptions of interviews, etc.) for PhD candidates and postdocs affiliated to ACES. The maximum amount available is € 1.500 per person. Deadline for applications is 1 December 2019.

    For more information about all calls please write to Gijs van der Starre
