Two funding schemes for UCL faculty and research students.
The UCL European Institute invites applications from UCL staff and from groups of MA, PhD and/or post-doctoral students to fund projects that lead to or support collaborative research-based projects on Europe or the European Union. Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions. The aim is to develop new research output, or seek to raise the profile and impact of current research.
Successful applicants for funding will be expected to contribute either a working paper or short comment related to their project for potential inclusion in the EI's Analysis and Publications section of its website.
Please email the European Institute if you have any questions:
