Call for STUE Action Grant 2023: 

In 2023 Sustainable Transformation of Urban Environments (STUE) profiling area offers action grants for activities that create and strengthen collaboration between Tampere University researchers and relevant stakeholders on sustainable urban change. 

The grant can be granted for example for the following activities in line with STUE’s objectives: 

  • establishing connections and collaboration with societal stakeholders that are relevant for enhancing sustainable urban change 
  • organising events that bring together researchers/students from different disciplines with societal actors outside the academia (such as seminars or workshops, organised jointly with relevant stakeholders)
  • creating/testing new concepts for collaboration

The grant can be applied by research networks and groups, or student organisations based at Tampere University as well as TUNI researchers. The applied sums can be up to EUR 3000, depending on the scale and the scope of the activity. Please note that the grant cannot be used for salary costs. 

The grant must be spent within the calendar year of 2023 (i.e. before 31.12.2023). The grant recipients will be requested to showcase the activity in STUE website by 1) providing a blogpost about the activity and 2) an ad to promote the activity if it is an open event. 

The STUE board makes the decisions about the funding. The decisions will be based on 1) how well the activity fits in STUE’s aims and vision, 2) grounds for the application and feasibility of the plan (why would this activity strengthen relevant collaboration and how will it be implemented in practice?), 3) how many would benefit from the activity, and 4) diversity of actions. The results will be published in April 2023.
