Call for Applications for the Annual EASST Fund (2019)

Deadline extended until 14 December 2018!


We are pleased to announce the call for applications for the EASST Fund
2019. Several successful applications will be awarded with €1000 funding.
The scheme aims to promote national and cross-national community
building within EASST, advance new questions, topics and perspectives in
science and technology studies, as well as enable collaboration with
non-academic actors publically engaged in science and technology. EASST
wishes to support a range of activities such as the organisation of
conferences, network meetings, seminars, workshops, summer schools, etc.
We welcome network and community-building activities organised by, or
leading to, the creation of national and regional academic associations
or other academic and non-academic initiatives committed to the
promotion of scholarly and public engagements with science and
technology in the European region. Examples of activities supported in
previous rounds: STS Austria launch event in Vienna, Spanish STS network
(esCTS) annual meetings, Technosciences of Post/Socialism conference in
Budapest, Mattering Press open-access STS publishing initiative.
We similarly encourage the organisation of workshops and small
conferences within Europe with the potential of making significant
theoretical and/or empirical contributions to the field. Examples of
supported activities from previous rounds: STS Perspectives on Energy
conference in Lisbon, Does History Matter? Techno-sciences and their
historically informed policies conference in Athens, STS and Development
workshop in Amsterdam.

Activities should start between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2019.
EASST especially invites applications from parts of Europe where EASST
activities and membership are under-represented (Southern and Eastern
Europe). There is a total budget of €5000 for this call. By default, we
offer € 1000 for successful applicants, but we also accept applications
for smaller sums. The proposed activities can be fully or partially
funded by EASST. There are no quotas for the announced support categories.

Applications can be submitted only by EASST members.
Applications should specify the category they apply for and include

Assessment of applications
The key considerations in assessing the applications are the following:

reaching to a European audience
Particular emphasis is given to novel network initiatives,
especially in countries under-represented in EASST (Southern and Eastern
Novel academic questions, new collaborations, and reaching beyond
Innovative initiatives in academia (e.g., open access publishing)
and public engagement in science and technology.
Open activities accessible for a wide array of participants and
reaching a broad audience.
Feasibility and value-for-money. We particularly welcome initiatives
with limited access to other potential sources of funding.
