Seed money to develop courses, programmes & COILs

International collaborations within the EUGLOH alliance

Developing new courses and programs is an important part of the work as a teacher, but it is also a time-consuming process. Now you can apply for seed money to develop new courses and programs in collaboration with foreign universities.

To ensure that the educational offer at the University is of high quality and meets the needs of the future, the university management wishes to stimulate the development of new courses and programmes and at the same time set demands for elements of internationalisation. The subject content should meet the needs of future society but is not limited to any subject.

When can you apply for seed money?

The deadline for applications is 15 October 2024, and the announcements will recur every year. The EUGLOH steering group at Lund University will make the decision about which applications will be granted seed money. Granted funds must be used during the calendar year in which they have been granted and they can be used to cover Lund University's salary costs for course development.

Granted projects must send in a report by 31 January 2026 at the latest, which describes how the funds have been used and what results have been achieved.

How to make contacts with teachers

Before you apply, your contacts at the partner university must be established. If you need new contacts for the collaboration, you can make use of EUGLOH's Visiting Guest Lecturer Programme.
