The Urban Migration call invites transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral communities of researchers and practitioners to create projects that align, synthesise or consolidate already existing knowledge on urban migration across disciplines on national and local levels.
A total of €2.02 million is available from the following participating countries: Austria, Germany, Latvia, Sweden and United Kingdom. The indicative budget per funded collaborative project (for all partners involved in a project) is €50.000 to €250.000.
The focus is the ways that migration affects and is affected by the life and functioning of cities.
Proposals should focus on one, many or a mix of migration types, categorised based on the following three principles (World Economic Forum, 2017):
- Political boundaries (internal vs. international migration)
- Movement patterns (step, circular or chain migration)
- Taking a decision-making approach (voluntary vs. involuntary migration)
The results from projects granted in this call should help to facilitate knowledge transfer and learning from different contexts, cities and countries to create greater engagement and understanding in migrant as well as host communities.
It should be noted that at least one relevant non-academic stakeholder, problem owner or practitioner as a partner or as self-funded partner (for instance cities, municipalities or public authorities) must be part of the consortia.
The deadline for pre-proposals has been extended to 2 April 2020 at 12:00 CET.
