The Utrecht University focus area Sport & Society promotes innovative, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research that studies the meaning of sport for a healthy, inclusive and secure society. In order to reach its goals, Sport & Society offers the opportunity to researchers and lecturers from UU and UMCU to apply for seed money. Other researchers/partners are invited to contact us as well.
The 2020-2022 seed money call consists of two different thematic calls for research programmes:
With the 2020-2022 call for seed money, Sport & Society aims to subsidise two (two-year) research programmes in which researchers from different disciplines investigate the issues of respectively criminal undermining of sport clubs and risky play from an inter-/transdisciplinary perspective and by using innovative approaches. These topics have been selected because of their relevance for Sport & Society and their potential for generating innovative and impactful research.
Deadline: 5 December 2019
All UU/UMCU researchers are invited to submit their motivations to join the research teams before 5 December 2019. See the position papers for more information and procedure.
Interested, but not a UU/UMCU researcher?
We are also open to other partners. Please share your interest and ideas with the corresponding authors: Ineke Deelen (email@example.com) regarding criminal undermining of sport clubs and Kristine de Martelaer (firstname.lastname@example.org) for risky play.
