Winning Proposals Connected World Calls 2022

1 August 2022
CONNECTED WORLD is one of four profile themes at the heart of Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam. In the new university strategic plan it has been decided to promote these themes much stronger than before and to match this with extra funding for the coming years.

The Faculty of Humanities will coordinate this stimulus for the Connected World profile theme; the two interfaculty research institutes CLUE+ and the Network Institute support it. To launch this initiative, on June 30/July 1 the profile theme organized the Connecting Worlds conference. The conference was opened by VU rector magnificus Jeroen Geurts and Humanities dean Susan Legêne gave a keynote lecture. The meeting combined a workshop on global water and food problems to one on digital society and global citizenship and to a Connected World Doctoral consortium. It successfully brought together researchers from the VU with a wide range of international networks, especially related to the VU Center for International Collaboration (CIS) and the Aurora universities network.

Parallel to the conference, under the umbrella of Connected World a series of calls has been opened for research and teaching proposals concerning Academy Assistants, Fellowships, Top Talent Teams and Academic Living Labs. The following Humanities projects in collaboration with members of other faculties have been awarded in these calls:
