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 teachingas well as in the field of research and innovation (which covers doctoral training projects). Currently, the scheme is endowed with EUR 300,000 per year, the maximum funding for a project being EUR 60,000.

At the end of its first edition, completed in 2017, the call for projects resulted in the funding of eight projects, five of which were in the “Research and Innovation” category and three in the “Teaching” category.
