First step to research financing: Contact one of two central committees on campus

The Central Committee for Research and Knowledge Transfer and the Central Committee for Europe and International Affairs are the university’s first points of contact for scholars who seek EUF funding for their research. The available financing supports the following activities:

  1. Conference travel and participation fees (early-stage researchers)
  2. Academic event organization
  3. Third-party funding proposals for research projects (preparation costs)

Each committee handles the funding requests for its designated thematic area

Committee for Research and Knowledge Transfer

The Central Committee for Research and Knowledge Transfer supports a broad spectrum of research projects and activities at EUF. The available funding mainly supports the costs of grant application preparation, academic event organization, research publication, and conference travel for early-stage researchers.

For more information, check out these materials and applications:

Partially or fully covers the cost of travel for early-stage researchers who are actively participating in a conference or workshop (e.g., through a talk or poster presentation). See Application FAQ: Funding to Promote Early-Stage Researchers. You can view a sample application here.

Partially or fully covers the costs of academic events organized by any EUF seminar, department, institute, professor or research associate. See Application FAQ: Academic Event Funding for detailed information. You can view a sample application here.

Helps cover administrative costs associated with preparing and submitting third-party funding proposals for research projects. For more information, see Application FAQ: Research Proposal Preparation Funding.

The university has several funding options designed to help EUF scholars publish their research. The available funding targets open-access publications and doctoral and postdoctoral [Habilitation] dissertations written at EUF. See FAQ: Applying for Publication Funding for more information.

  • Eligible for funding are doctoral dissertations with a distinction of summa cum laude or magna cum laude, and postdoctoral [Habilitation] dissertations that have been accepted for publication by a leading publisher. See FAQ: Applying for Dissertation Publication Funding for more details.
     
  • Open-access publications:
     
    • The state of Schleswig-Holstein allocates funding to support the open-access publication of journal articles by early-stage researchers. See FAQ: Applying for Funding Applications for Open-Access Publications and the application itself.
       
    • Texts published within the scope of Project DEAL with Springer Nature and Wiley are eligible for funding .
       
    • Texts written in the context of an EUF academic appointment and subsequently published in open-access format—either in parallel to or after having been published in hard copy—(hybrid open-access publications) are eligible for funding. For further information, see FAQ: Applying for Funding for Hybrid Open-Access Publications and the application form.
       
    • Other exclusively open-access publications that are not otherwise eligible for funding at EUF are also eligible for funding.

Central Committee for Europe and International Affairs

The Central Committee for Europe and International Affairs supports a variety of international projects, with a special focus on promoting international cooperation, engagement and exchange.

Check out the information sheets below for more information.

Please note the information regarding the procedure for concluding new international cooperation agreements at  Europa-Universität Flensburg:

Commission for the Funding of Academic and Creative Talent (Scholarship Committee)

Doctoral committee

The doctoral committee offers financial assistance to doctoral students who are about to finish their dissertations. Assistance takes form of short-term loans allocated from the Hardship Fund for Doctoral Students.

Application for a reduced teaching load for research purposes

Professors and research associates at EUF who can present exceptional research achievements may apply for up to a 50% reduction of their contractual teaching load [10519]. This option represents an extraordinary chance for individual scholars to optimize their research conditions at EUF.

Research infrastructure: EbaySys for online surveys in research contexts in and beyond EUF

EUF scholars will soon be able to use the EvaSys software to conduct online surveys in research contexts beyond our campus community, especially for externally funded projects. EvaSys offers the necessary technical capabilities, and EUF has a specialized EvaSys support team of its own, since it already uses the software for internal purposes. The software also complies with data protection regulations.

If it is possible to cover the software costs using external funding, research teams should prioritize its use and include this expense in their proposed grant budgets. If not, the university can cover the cost from its main budget and will provide this as a free service to all EUF-affiliated scholars, including doctoral students, in an effort to improve the university’s research infrastructure.
