How to get your hands on EU funding - for Arts and BSS, 10th January

Do you think funding from EU is a bit of a black box for researchers from the social sciences and humanities? Do you want to know more about the opportunities for participation?

Then join our seminar Wednesday 10th of January 2018 at Aarhus University.

At the seminar, you can

  • Hear about the calls for 2018-2020 and how social sciences and humanities fit in
  • Get tips and tricks on how to get started and join an EU-project

The seminar focuses on collaborative projects and societal challenges, but we will present other relevant opportunities as well.

Morten Gylling from Eurocenter (Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education) will make an introductory presentation. He is our National Contact Point in the areas of Societal Challenge 6 (Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies), Science with and for Society (SWAFS) and Marie Curie Actions.
