There are two main sources of funding available within the York-Maastricht Partnership.

York-Maastricht Investment Fund

The YMP has an annual call for seed funding to support collaborative Greener Future research between York and Maastricht. The recent call has now closed, applications are being reviewed, and selected projects will commence this Summer. The next call will be in 2023.

Devolved funding

There are also smaller funding pots available on a rolling basis for staff at both universities to facilitate collaboration. These are:

  • a travel fund of up to €500 to support visits to each University and cover economy travel, accommodation and subsistence costs
  • a workshop fund of up to €5,000 to support collaborative events between groups of staff or students at each University that further the Partnership’s research and/or educational initiatives. This might include research workshops, seminars, project planning and longer visits.

Each University has a devolved budget to cover these activities.
