CEMarin Call 13/2018: Seed Grants
Deadline: until funds allocated for this call are exhausted.
The Corporation Center of Excellence in Marine Sciences inform the community of researchers that the Call: Seed Grants 2018 is open, to support CEMarin researchers in preparing a collaborative grant proposal in an emerging field of marine sciences.
The call supports groups of researchers from at least two CEMarin institutions* in preparing
a collaborative grant proposal addressing a novel research question in marine sciences.
Among others, it aims at supporting national and international networking activities for establishing novel research questions, and at generating preliminary scientific data before the submission of
a full grant proposal to a primary funding agency.
The program is open to both early stage researchers supervised by CEMarin scientists as well as to senior researchers. The seed grants funds will be administered by CEMarin and will be paid directly to the researcher. The call will be open in 2018 as long as funds remain.
The Seed Grant Program has two stages. In the first stage, a CEMarin principal researcher requests the seed grant by submitting a short and concise research proposal, which is evaluated by CEMarin administrative staff and/or the scientific committee in an expedited process. Successful seed grants will commence funding in stage two, which has the objective of preparing an extensive proposal with the aim of being funded by a primary agency. Preparing the proposal for the second stage includes acquiring preliminary data, traveling, networking or performing meetings.
Documents must be submitted in PDF format by email to the Scientific Project Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) with email subject: Call No. 13 of 2018 – Seed Grants. The results of this call will regularly be published on the CEMarin website. For more information, please email questions to
email@example.com or the phone +57 1-3002715.
* CEMarin is a mixed and non-profit Corporation, founded by Colombian institutions (Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Universidad de los Andes, Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano, Universidad del Valle, and Universidad de Antioquia) and by the Justus-Liebig University in Giessen, Germany to perform basic and applied research in Marine Sciences, collectively solving problems that cannot be faced by isolated individuals or institutions.
