Virtual Studies Call for Course Proposals 2020

December 20, 2019

The Finnish University Partnership for International Development – UniPID is hereby inviting interested course teachers and lecturers from UniPID member universities to submit course proposals for the UniPID Virtual Studies programme.

Virtual Studies Call for Course Proposals 2020

The 2020 Call for Proposals aims to fund courses that contribute to and expand the themes and overall offering of UniPID's Virtual Studies programme. This call is divided into two parts:

New UniPID course
A sum of up to 6 500 € per course is available from UniPID for the creation and provision of a new online course. In this call, special attention is given to proposals that address the role of climate change in sustainable development especially in the Global South as well as courses produced in collaboration with the course providers’ partners in the Global South. We would also welcome proposals with a strong interdisciplinary approach. However, other proposals exploring challenges of sustainable development in the Global South will be considered.

Updating an existing UniPID course
A sum of up to 4 500 € per course is available from UniPID for updating a course that has been offered at least 3 times as a part of the UniPID Virtual Studies syllabus. UniPID would like to offer courses to students all around the year. Should you be able to offer your course during the summer break, we advise you to inform it in your proposal.

The applicants are required to specify which category of funding they are applying for.

The courses funded under this call should be aimed to be offered for the first time during the academic year 2020-2021.

The deadline for proposals is 14 February, 2020 at 23:59. Applicants can expect to receive the results in March.
