More projects than ever

The Seed Funding Initiative is one of EUniWell's flagship programmes. This latest round of funding enriches the Alliance’s portfolio with 11 innovative projects, underscoring its dedication to fostering innovative research and educational initiatives. By engaging researchers, educators, students, and staff from across member universities, this initiative not only strengthens existing collaborations but also cultivates new synergies within the Alliance, thereby promoting a culture of co-creation and knowledge exchange.

Projects are also looking beyond EUniWell in this call, with involvement from associated partners from Ukraine, Finland, and the US, reflecting the Alliance’s broader commitment to global engagement and cooperation in addressing pressing societal challenges.

The 11 selected projects

These are the projects chosen by the Seed Funding Selection Committee:
