Support for research networks
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.
