About S Seed Grants  

  • Budget: max €5.000
  • Eligibility: Researchers with their main affiliation at the FMG may serve as main applicants (including postdocs). PhD candidates may serve as co-applicants with their supervisors’ approval.
  • Pilot funding can be used for participant payments, surveys, travel, research materials, research assistant hours, computing, workshops, or other costs. Funding can be used for new projects or to add a new sustainability-related goal to an existing project. The funding cannot be used for personnel costs such as teaching buy-out.
  • Project teams consist of at least 2 FMG members from two different departments. External researchers are welcome to participate in the project but are not grant recipients.
