CLUE+/Connected World Calls for Proposals

27 May 2022
CONNECTED WORLD is one of four profile themes at the heart of Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam. Wishing to promote innovative research on this theme, the VU interfaculty research institute CLUE+ sustains Top Talent Teams. Additionally, CLUE+ sustains the creation of two Connected World Academic Living Labs.

Top Talent Teams

These teams integrate bachelor and/or master students from various programmes. They will independently work on an assignment that is formulated by CLUE+ members and deliver a concrete and tangible end result. The teams will write a master plan, set up a website, brainstorm with people from various disciplines, maintain relationships with stakeholders and translate ideas and expertise into prototypes, designs or plans. Each team is supported by a supervision group of at least two researchers, of which at least the applicant must be CLUE+ member. With the present call, we cordially invite CLUE+ staff to propose such a Top Talent team for the fall of 2022. The proposed research must explicitly relate to the Connected World theme.

Academic Living Labs

An academic living lab is a (knowledge) infrastructure in which practice, research and policy cooperate. In concrete terms, this means that the university cooperates with one or more non-academic institutions. The aim is to translate issues from practice, education and policy into research questions and to translate the results of research into practice in order to apply them. With the present call, we cordially invite CLUE+ staff to propose a living lab for the fall of 2022. The programme is meant to bring together scientists from different disciplines; therefore the labs must combine methods and themes from two disciplines. For each awarded lab, the programme will fund costs to a maximum of €20.000,- (e.g. salaries, material costs, travel expenses). The proposed research must explicitly relate to the Connected World theme. Click here for more information and application guidelines.

Connected World

Today’s world is a Connected World, with 24/7 online communication, millions of citizens closely packed in metropolitan cities, and people, goods and ideas travelling around the globe as never before. VU wishes to actively stimulate research on those connections and in particular to contribute to the solution of disconnection: better connecting social groups in metropolitan melting pots, better connecting citizens to the environment they inhabit and better connecting global citizens to improve mutual understanding.

Deadline for application

The deadline for applications for both calls is July 1, 2022 before 23:59. The winning proposals receive communication in the second week of July.
