Una Europa launches an annual call for applications for seed funding. The aim of the seed funding initiative is to support the initiation of long-term collaborative activities between the partner universities. The idea is to "plant a seed" that can eventually attract external funding.

University of Helsinki has been coordinating several projects, that have been supported by the Una Europa Seed Funding: 

Linguistic variation in postcolonial contexts (LiVaPoCo)

One Health as an emerging focus area for Una Europa (UNA-OH)

The role of academia in transition to sustainable food systems (INSTIL)

Toppling Statues: Public Spaces, Colonial Heritage, and Identities in Europe (EuroStatues)
