The UvA ‘Theme-based collaboration’ programme invites academics to formulate new, sometimes unexpected research questions on socially relevant themes at the interface of disciplines and faculties - and to also incorporate these in teaching. This programme is an important step in realising UvA’s Strategic Plan's ambition to innovate research and teaching through collaboration, both between disciplines within the UvA and with external partners. Four societal themes were selected, on which there is much relevant expertise within the UvA: Responsible digital transformations, Fair and resilient societies, Sustainable prosperity and Healthy future.

Budget has been made available from the programme ‘Theme-based collaboration’ for Seed grants & Midsize projects. This call for proposals is directed at interfaculty research collaborations, i.e. co-operations that go beyond the boundaries of individual faculties.Please consult the dedicated webpage for specific information on the IP Themes and details on the calls. Deadline 24 February.
