In the eurozone, the EU needs greater legitimacy at the national level not only to secure space for domestic politics but also to secure respect for social and economic commitments over time.

It's groundhog day in Britain, where the European Union is concerned. The context changes, but the basic issues do not.

Small Grants Scheme for UCL Staff


Every year, we invite applications from UCL staff to our Small Grants Scheme. Via this scheme, we fund projects that feed into existing or may lead to new collaborative research on Europe in any discipline.

New Call now out!

The new Call for Proposals for projects to be undertaken in the academic year 2015-2016 has yet to be announced.

  • Deadline for submission: tba
  • Download the application form.
  • Email us if you have any questions.

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. Funding of up to £2000 plus some administrative assistance is available per project. 

Eligible projects

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

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

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), which leads to an event, feeds into a discussion group or results 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
