Public Engagement Seed Fund



    The seed fund provides an opportunity for scientific staff of the UG and UMCG to receive up to €5,000 for ongoing or future public engagement projects. All submissions are screened for eligibility by a jury consisting of University of Groningen and UMCG employees, after which five eligible projects are randomly selected to get the funding they requested. Indeed, the Public Engagement seed fund rewards those staff members of the UG and UMCG that want to engage the public without unnecessary competitiveness, and distributes available funding in a manner that acknowledges the element of luck in funding awards.
