EUPeace Fund - First Call for Proposals

Together, as members of EUPeace, we are launching the first EUPeace Fund Call as a step towards permanently creating an EUPeace academic and administrative community and to generate valuable input towards fine-tuning our EUPeace roadmap. By providing a format for collaboration via EUPeace Fund seed funding, we give participating researchers, educators, students and administrators a tool for experimentation and participation. The EUPeace Fund offers a bottom-up approach to generate information on the interests and needs of our communities.
