Providing seed grants is a major activity of the platform. All team members are eligible to submit grant proposals to apply for funding.

Apart from being scientifically excellent, successful seed grant applications should­
a) address at least one of the main research questions of the platform, and
b) encompass at least two co-applicants of the platform.

In addition, applications for funds from a´treasure box´will be possible. The´treasure box allows junior researchers working in the team members teams to apply for a specific amount of money to develop and conduct their own studies.

Funding guidelines for seed grants and treasure box grants can be found here.
