Calls for Proposals Out Now!

11 April 2014

We are pleased to announce the next round of our small grant schemes - for projects by UCL faculty and UCL research students to take place in the Academic Year 2014-15.
Deadline: 06/06/2014.


CfP (faculty): Small Grants Scheme, 2014-15


The UCL European Institute invites applications from UCL staff to its Small Grants Scheme, for projects that lead to or support collaborative research-based projects on Europe broadly conceived. Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions; collaboration between staff based in different UCL departments is particularly encouraged. 

Download the application form.

Please return the completed form by 6 June 2014 to european.institute@ucl.ac.uk.


We invite proposals that aim to either (or both):

  • achieve research impact (through scholarly output, public engagement, influence on policy and practice, knowledge transfer or similar)
  • prepare the ground for extended research projects (including grant applications).


Typical projects eligible for funding include:

  • costs associated with research activity (e.g. travel, interviews), including research assistant time (UCL HEFCE staff costs/salaries are not eligible), leading to an event, feeding into a discussion group or resulting in a co-authored publication.
  • costs associated with a pilot study or the preparation of a research grant application
  • organising a research conference, seminar series, workshop(s), or a public panel discussion;
  • convening a reading or discussion group;
  • public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions

Call for Proposals (students): Junior Researchers Forum 2013-14


The UCL European Institute invites applications to its yearly funding scheme for groups of MA, PhD and/or post-doctoral students, who wish to explore common research interests related to Europe or the European Union, aim to develop new research output, or seek to raise the profile and impact of their research.

Download the application form.

Please return the completed form by 6 June 2014 to european.institute@ucl.ac.uk.

Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions and are ideally relevant to one of the Institute’s six themes. Proposals, which count with lead applicants from at least two different departments at UCL, will be given priority.

Typical projects eligible for funding include:

  • organising a research conference, a seminar series, workshop(s), or a public panel discussion
  • convening a reading or discussion group
  • costs associated with working groups leading to written research output (publication, working paper, report)
  • costs associated with research activity (e.g. travel, interviews) leading to an event, feeding into a reading/discussion group or resulting in a co-authored publication
  • public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions
