Oxford - UdK Berlin - Seedfunding for Creative Collaborations

The University of Oxford and the Berlin University of the Arts invite their researchers, artists and designers to participate in the Oxford – UdK Berlin Partnership initiative in the Arts and Humanities. The initiative is intended to strengthen the ties both between the two institutions and between artistic and academic disciplines, and this is the second seedfunding call made by the partners to facilitate interdisciplinary research projects. Proposals for the seedfunding scheme should be jointly submitted by at least one faculty member from each institution (University of Oxford: a salaried faculty member or equivalent at post-doctoral level; Berlin University of the Arts: professors and mid-level faculty – artistic staff, research assistant in tandem with a professor – are eligible to apply).

Colleagues from other partners/ institutions outside the universities are able to participate. Please note, however, that they will have to bear their own costs. The universities are interested in project ideas which have the potential for credible applications to other funders at a later stage.

Eligible projects will run between 01 January 2024 and 31 October 2024, with activities taking place in either Berlin or Oxford, or in both. Across all projects, the funding provided by the universities for this funding call is €40,000.


Funding deadline: 31 October 2023
