Research funding for networks and research programmes
A central part of Circus' mission is to support the development of cross-cutting research networks at Uppsala University. The support is awarded after an open call. The purpose of the support is to facilitate the development of research networks that transgress disciplinary, departmental and faculty boundaries. For example, the support can be used to advance ideas for specific research projects to organise meetings to develop new collaborations. The support is primarily aimed to facilitate such collaborations within the Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences at Uppsala University.
The support is awarded for two years and the networks granted support receive both financial and administrative support from Circus. The call is made once a year.
Other forms of support:
- Funding to support gatherings that promote inter- and multi-disciplinary collaborations among doctoral students (link to web page)
- Support for workshops, seminar series and other collaborative initiatives within the remit of Circus. Circus grants this support on a case-by-case basis. An award of support includes administrative support, and that Circus assumes costs related to the initiative up to the awarded amount. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Circus also works actively to develop ways for sharing experiences and facilitate learning on how to develop and nurture cross-cutting collaborations.
