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. 

  • Competitive seed grants

    Seed grants support the writing of applications for ERC, NWO and other major individual grants. The grant may be used to buy out teaching time, hire a research assistant, purchase data sets and/or software, organise or attend a scientific conference, etc.. ACES will award four-five grants of € 4.000-5.000 each in 2019. Deadline for applications is 15 March 2019.

  • Small thematic research grants

    In 2019, ACES will offer up to four small thematic research grants. These grants offer additional research time for ACES affiliates to pursue a project related to one of its three Research Themes or the Migration Network. The general aim is to provide an opportunity to build and strengthen the affiliate’s research profile. ACES will cover the costs of a maximum of  0,1 fte of additional research time for a full year. The additional research time can be used for various purposes, e.g. data collection/fieldwork, data analysis, writing a book or article(s). No additional funding will be provided for research expenses. It is expected that the research grant will result in new publications and other outputs (such as grant applications). Call closed for 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 15 March 2019.

  • 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. Call closed for 2019
