Webinar on EU-Conexus seed funding programme opportunities

Date : Mon 26 Feb

Time : 12:00 - 13:00

Cost : €Free


Join us for a special webinar on 26 February, 2024, at 12pm Irish Time (1pm CET).

We’ll be presenting insights into our seed funding programme and sharing valuable feedback from the first call.

Smart Urban Coastal Sustainability is a challenge-driven education and research discipline. The nine-university alliance which includes South East Technological University (SETU), aims to address global and local challenges by tackling the environmental, technical, economic and societal needs of our coastline. 

The objectives of seed funding are to enhance collaboration between EU-CONEXUS partners in education, research and innovation. Research and academic teams from EU-CONEXUS partner universities can apply for funding of up to €4,400.

Each proposal will be assessed on three main criteria:
•    Scientific/academic excellence: Relevance of the project with regards to the societal challenge of Smart Urban Coastal Sustainability, scientific contribution and innovation of the proposed project, appropriateness, completeness and clarity of the methodology.
•    Impact: Impact of proposed activities and results, in particular for EU-CONEXUS, expected outcomes.
•    Quality & efficiency of implementation: work plan, organisation, budget coherence with regards to project ambition.

Proposals involving more EU-CONEXUS partner universities will be prioritised. Further details and a list of criteria can be found here.
