The University of Lausanne (UNIL) is launching a call for facilitating the networking of UNIL faculty members with CIVIS colleagues and the setting up of joint collaborative projects.

Elligibility criteria

Eligibility criteria include the following:

  • The main applicant should be an academic from the University of Lausanne (UNIL);

UNIL CIVIS seed funding set up aims in particular to:

  • To encourage the emergence of teaching projects such as summer or winter schools, Blended Intensive Programs (BIP) or other innovative formats led by UNIL faculty members;

We invite UNIL academics and CIVIS project coordinators to get in touch among themselves to exchange ideas of collaborations (new initiatives or enlarging existing projects to new CIVIS partners).
