Support forms

A key mission of Circus is to stimulate innovative research by facilitating new patterns of collaboration. This is done through various forms of support aimed to cultivate collaborations across disciplinary, departmental and faculty boundaries within primarily the Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences at Uppsala University. Some forms of support are provided through open calls and external peer review while other, regularly smaller, forms of support are awarded after a case-by-case assessment.

Circus is a program for finding new pathways for fostering research rather than a specific research program. Initiatives supported are all distinctly multi-, inter-, or trans-disciplinary with a focus on developing collaborations within the Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences at Uppsala University. Circus is in this way evolving into a broad and differentiated platform for developing cross-cutting research collaborations within the disciplinary domain.
