In 2022, EUniWell introduced a new initiative to promote collaboration in well-being research: the EUniWell Well-Being Research Incubator Programme. The concept behind the Incubator is to encourage collaboration between researchers from a number of EUniWell institutions and a variety of disciplines through online workshops and small-scale projects.
The Well-Being Research Incubator Programme gives researchers access to our established, well-connected European alliance of universities and partners from the public, private and third sectors. Through collaborative workshops, the Programme offers opportunities to: learn about research activity taking place across Europe; make connections and build a network of peers; identify common interests, synergies and potential for research collaboration.
A follow-on funding scheme is available for researchers who have run a workshop to implement small-scale projects which test out and scope ideas for larger-scale funding bids in the future. We believe that collaboration supported through the Well-Being Research Incubator will help to improve the quality and reach of research across our institutions. Researchers and their work will be better informed by parallel developments in other countries, and they will have access to a targeted international audience with which to share their work.
The Well-Being Research Incubator Programme is managed by the University of Birmingham on behalf of the EUniWell consortium.
