Last year, Aarhus University participated in 7 out of the 13 projects that received seed funding from the Circle U. alliance. This year, researchers and academic staff can once again apply for up to 10,000 euros – and students up to 5,000 euros – for each grassroot project that bring together at least three Circle U. partners in developing educational offers, research projects or workshops (see more examples).

The Circle U. seed funding aims to support projects in the early development phase and the applications deadline is 15 October 2024. Only one application must be submitted per project so it's important to coordinate this with the other partners.
