UvA Research Priority Area Funding
Academic conferences are one or two day events where a topic with a distinct European dimension is addressed. They pursue an interdisciplinary approach and involve at least two of the participating UvA faculties (FEB, FGw, FMG, FdR). Cooperation with 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.
Preparing collaborative grant proposals
ACES can provide financial support for the preparation of collaborative grant proposals (for programmes such as Horizon2020 and NORFACE), e.g. for organising or participating in planning meetings. Applications are accepted all year round.
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.
FMG Research Priority Area Funding
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.
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:
- To prepare an application for an ERC, NWO and other major individual grant: a Seed Grant
- To advance research related to one of ACES’s three Research Themes or the Migration Network: a Thematic Research Grant
