Pump-prime funding call #1 – list of projects

The full list of funding awards resulting from the first CONNECTED pump-prime funding call is listed below. Amongst CONNECTED’s key objectives is enabling members to successfully apply for research funding. So we provide pump-prime funding (PPF) for a wide range of short-term research projects. The aim is that these can be used as the basis for future larger-scale funding applications.

This first funding call was the first of two during the CONNECTED project lifetime.
