Grants for preparing research applications
CFE has allocated 400.000 SEK (plus LKP) for this purpose during 2019 which will be divided into two calls (spring and autumn). This is the second call. The grant is expected to be used by the successful applicants during VT 2020 – HT 2020.
The application must have a clear connection to European matters. It should be based on a perspective (historical or current) that relates to contemporary conditions in Europe. The project should address issues of broader European interest and not issues relevant to a single European country.
CFE gives priority to collaborative projects where the European research is multidisciplinary and involves several faculties. The grant can be used for the applicant’s own work or for the employment of an assistant.
Only researchers employed by Lund University can apply for the grant.
The application should include the following:
• Information regarding the applicant’s employment and a written confirmation from the head of department that the application is supported by the department and that it is able to host the project.
• A project description (research question, structure and general approach – maximum three pages), a list of international and/or national partners and a preliminary time schedule.
• A short CV for the applicant (maximum 2 pages) and information about co-applicants.
The application should be submitted electronically through this form no later than November 4, 2019.
The applications will be examined by the CFE board. The decision will be announced no later than November 25, 2019.
Grant recipients are expected to follow the principles of accounting that have been decided by the CFE board. More information about this will be sent to successful applicants.
