Seminar grants

UniPID offers grants to support the organization of seminars on global development issues. The grants, worth up to 2000 euros, may be awarded to UniPID member universities organizing or co-organizing such seminars.

The aim of the grant is to encourage and advance the achievement of universities’ global responsibility objectives by supporting the development of curricula and academic debate related to international development issues. The grants are intended to support multidisciplinary seminars that discuss a topic related to international development or global challenges. The seminar programme should allow for presentations by PhD students working on dissertations related to global development issues, and the seminar should also be open to participants outside of the organizing university.

The Call for Proposals is open once every year. The Call for seminars that shall be organized during 2020 is open now.
