About the Una Europa–Africa Partnership Seed Funding Call 2023

Co-developed by Una Europa and a number of African universities as part of our shared Vision and Roadmap, this Seed Funding Call is your opportunity to embark on an intercontinental research partnership.

*Established academics and early-career researchers from the 11 Una Europa partner universities and the following participating African universities are invited to take part:

  • Eduardo Mondlane University, Mozambique
  • Kampala International University, Uganda
  • Makerere University, Uganda
  • University of Ghana, Ghana
  • University of Johannesburg, South Africa
  • University of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo

A mobility fellowship embedded in the Seed Funding scheme will support an established researcher at one of the participating African universities to bring their expertise to an Una Europa coordinating university in the role of chair. Professional development opportunities for early-career researchers will be an integral feature of successful projects.

The Seed Funding Call will support joint projects in education, research and innovation, and societal outreach across Una Europa's six Focus Areas.
