After a very successful pilot call in 2019, the Technische Universität Berlin opens another call for proposals for Seed Funding for Cooperation with Partners in the Global South; funds are available for scientific staff of Technische Universität Berlin, who aim at initiating and further strengthening collaboration together with partners in the Global South.


The call will fund proposals which address the Agenda 2030 of the United Nations and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) working on responses to global challenges, and which are in line with the TU Berlin’s Strategy on Global Responsibility. The call seeks to attract project ideas aiming at: capacity building in the Global South, transfer of knowledge/ technology/ skills, joint knowledge creation with partners in the Global South, or/and encouraging exchange and networking between Departments. The participation of young researchers at TU Berlin and young researchers of universities from regions of the Global South is particularly welcome.

Project ideas shall result in the preparation of one or several proposals for third-party funding, and thus contribute to the international cooperation between partners in the Global South and TU Berlin.

The total pool of funding available under this call is 30.000 EUR. The following activities can be funded up to the maximum of 10.000 EUR per applicant:

1.)     Short research visits to partners and,
