Results of the second competition for mini-grants

Category: II.1.1, Results

Four inter-university research teams have received co-financing as part of the second competition for mini-grants, funded by IDUB. The teams will carry out projects associated which are thematically related to the four flagship areas of the 4EU+ Alliance.

Similarly to the first, pilot competition, mini-grants could be obtained by research teams comprised of members from the University of Warsaw as well as representatives of at least two other universities belonging to the 4EU+ Alliance.

The objective of the mini-grant programme is to strengthen cooperation between the University of Warsaw and the other members of the 4EU+ Alliance, through shared research projects. The anticipated result of each project that is carried out with a mini-grant is the development of research objectives for a project proposal that may then be submitted in a competition for grants which are financed or co-financed from external sources (domestic or foreign, including EU funds), in order to enable the continuation and development of research cooperation.

The funds which are granted through mini-grants (up to 10,000 euro) will be used for preliminary research or pilot studies, research queries, academic consultation (including project consultation), research infrastructure, or language services.
