The Seed Money scheme aims to provide initial financial support for innovative cross-border projects within Eucor – The European Campus. Created by the universities to promote the exchange and networking of teachers and researchers from member institutions, this funding can be granted to projects in the field of teaching as well as in the field of research and innovation (which covers doctoral training projects). Currently, the scheme is endowed with 300,000 euros per year, the maximum funding for a project being 60,000 euros.
The first Seed Money call for projects was published in 2017 and resulted in the funding of eight projects, five of which were in the “Research and Innovation” category and three in the “Teaching” category. Eight additional projects were funded under each of the second (2018), third (2019) and fourth (2020) calls for projects. Nine projects were funded under the fifth call (2021).
