Junior Research Forum
Each year, we support a number of advanced research students – MA students, PhD candidates and postdoctoral fellows – to work together to explore common research interests related to Europe broadly conceived.
Call for 2015-2016
A new call for proposals for the academic year 2015-16 is out now.
We invite proposals from groups of at least two students, who aim to develop new research output, or seek to raise the profile and impact of their research. Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or address long-standing research questions. Collaboration between students based in different UCL departments is particularly encouraged. Funding of up to £1000 plus some administrative assistance is available per project.
Current Projects (2014-15)
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

- Political Discourse: Multidisciplinary Approaches (2014-15)
