Get Involved as a Researcher

Una Europa offers academics a suite of opportunities to facilitate collaboration in education, research and non-academic partners.

Our alliance is founded on long-standing collaboration and strong connections across various initiatives and stakeholders. We are committed to establishing a framework for systematic collaboration seamlessly integrated into institutional structures and workflows to support the research collaboration in a flexible and sustainable way.

By consolidating and expanding the virtual inter-university campus and by providing mobility opportunities, we can create a more effective and collaborative research community that will benefit all European researchers.  

Una Europa puts a special emphasis on early-career researchers. With the ability to offer a wide range of training opportunities across partner institutions, Una Europa is uniquely positioned to empower the researchers of future with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the evolving academic environment and diversify their career opportunities.

Una Opportunities for Researchers

Please note that there are no active Seed Funding calls at at the moment. We will add information about the opening calls on Una Europa official web pages.  

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)

The Una Europa Chairs initiative is one of our key initiatives to attract talent from around the world to collaborate with us. By attracting outstanding academics from the Una Europa partners and beyond for visiting professorships, the Una Europa Chairs will further raise our profile on a global scale, deepen our activities and cement different kinds of mobility, within our network and beyond. With the Una Europa Chairs, we would like to advance research, training and programme development in higher education by acting as bridge-builder between academia, civil society, local communities, researchers and enterprises.
