The Seed Funding Programme

The EUniWell Seed Funding Programme aims to promote collaborative, grassroots projects initiated by researchers, students, teachers and administrative staff from our universities.

The scheme supports initiatives which are in line with EUniWell’s core mission: To understand, measure, rebalance and improve the well-being within universities and society as a whole. The Seed Funding Programme contributes to further deepening our mutual bonds and creating innovative ideas to foster well-being, enhance existing collaborations between EUniWell members, or initiate new ones.

Projects can address a large set of topics related to health (mental and physical), individual and social well-being, quality education, as well as environmental and urban sustainability, all of which are essential for well-being and quality of life, as defined by the EUniWell mission statement.

The Seed Funding Programme is jointly financed by all partner universities of the Alliance; competitive calls for proposals are organised twice a year.


After four successful editions, EUniWell is now launching a new call for its Seed Funding Programme, which supports collaborations to promote well-being and bring together students, researchers, teachers and administrators from across our Alliance.

The current 5th Seed Funding Call is open between 6 February and 9 April 2023. For the first time, this call will also involve Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv in the Seed Funding Programme.

The EUniWell Seed Funding Projects involve members from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines from at least four partner universities.

Funded projects are innovative and address EUniWell’s core commitment to advance our four key arenas: Well-Being and Health; Individual and Social Well-Being; Environment, Urbanity and Well-Being; as well as Teacher Education.

Projects may address research, teaching or policy development topics as well as student well-being.

The maximum grant allocated per project is €25,000, which can be split between involved project partners.
