PIER PLUS Seed Fund
The PIER PLUS Seed Fund is an important instrument that is used to fund collaborative research. The fund’s aim is to support the individual PIER PLUS profiles and promote joint research projects between partners.
PIER PLUS Seed Fund is comprised of funding provided by the profile’s participating partners. To improve its efficacy, the PIER PLUS Seed Fund is structured and implemented at the level of the individual PIER PLUS profiles. This supports collaboration between the partners in subject areas of proven scholarly merit and allows funding formats to be aligned with those of the corresponding academic community.
The profile boards inform the PIER PLUS Steering Committee about planned funding formats and report on funded projects.
Responsibility for coordinating and monitoring the PIER PLUS Seed Fund lies with the PIER PLUS Office.
