Funding of up to £10,000 is now available from UCL Grand Challenges for innovative, cross-disciplinary activities addressing the theme of European Voices.


Call for Expressions of Interest: European Voices

Deadline: Midnight Monday 25th November 2019

UCL's Grand Challenge of Cultural Understanding invites researchers to apply for funding under the 2019/20 special initiative - European Voices.

Funding is available of up to £10,000 to support one or more major cross-disciplinary activities that could be taken forward by applicants.

To be considered for funding, researchers are asked to submit an expression of interest to attend a mini-sandpit on the theme. The sandpit will be held at UCL on Wednesday 4th December, 14:00-16:00.

Further information and full guidance is available: Application Guidance.

Project ideas can include research or policy workshops, symposia or conferences; reports; preparatory or exploratory research materials towards larger grant applications; public and community engagement activities; or research-led performance/public art-based outputs, including plays and documentary films. We encourage interaction with community groups, artists or arts organisations, and with UCL Culture.

At the sandpit, participants will share their research ideas relating to the topic, and collaborate with other participants to inform their future proposal.
