4EU+ student mini-grants 2022
Charles University will support up to 10 projects through so-called student mini-grants, seed funding for teams from the 4EU+ universities. This scheme aims to encourage students and young researchers from all around the 4EU+ Alliance to collaborate without the limitation of their fields, faculties, or universities.
The projects can focus on initiating international research collaboration, organizing joint educational activities (workshops, soft skill courses, etc.) and developing socio-cultural collaboration and strengthening the third role of the university (active involvement in the social discourse and search for solutions to global economic, social and environmental issues).
Applicant must be a student of Charles University.
Project has to involve at least three 4EU+ member universities (Charles University + Heidelberg Universität, Sorbonne Université, Uniwersytet Warszawski, Università degli Studi di Milano or Københavns Universitet).
Supported activities must be in line with the 4EU+ Mission statement.
The maximum amount to apply for is CZK 150,000 (approx. EUR 6100).
Funding of the projects will be scheduled for the period of June–November 2022.
The deadline for submitting applications is 1st June.
4EU+ Against Cancer Summer School
4EU+ students can apply for participation in the 4EU+ Against Cancer Summer School that will take place in Warsaw from 3rd to 9th July 2022.
Oncology with preclinical research (i.e. in silico, in vitro, in vivo) and clinical (early phase, late phases) becomes more and more complex with multiple and complementary fields of investigations. In addition, it becomes more and more cost- and time-consuming. This research program will give an overview of the different axis of research in oncology and different fundings of research.
International researchers, teachers and members from 4EU+ universities will give lectures and meet students.
4EU+ joint course “Data Analytics for Students of Social Studies and Humanities”
This course is a gentle, programming-free combination of lectures and practical demonstrations of real-life data workflows in various SSH research areas. It aims at motivating the SSH students to improve their digital literacy in more advanced data analytics courses. The curriculum has arisen as a joint effort of Charles University, University of Warsaw, and Sorbonne University.
Registration is required for students interested in obtaining ECTS credits, however, anyone interested may take part in the classes.
Classes are held online.
Free Online 4EU+ Course: Data Literacy
“Data Literacy – What is it and Why Does it Matter?” is the title of an open online course.
It will cover issues from three perspectives: data in personal life, data in society, and data in knowledge production. The aim is threefold:
- to expand the skills and abilities to identify, understand, and interpret the many roles of digital technologies in daily life;
- to enable the participants to discern when data-driven technologies add value to people’s lives, and when they exploit human vulnerabilities or deplete the commons;
- to cultivate a deeper understanding of how data-driven technologies are shaping knowledge production and how they may be realigned with real human needs and values.
The course is funded by Erasmus+ and developed by the 4EU+ University Alliance including Charles University (Univerzita Karlova), Sorbonne Unviersity (Sorbonne Université), University of Copenhagen (Københavns Universitet), University of Milan (Università degli studi di Milano), and University of Warsaw (Uniwersytet Warszawski).
