Even though SHAPE interprets the concept of digital active citizenship very broadly, projects must involve more than simply using data to study a given phenomenon. No matter whether a project is analytical or more activistic, it will not be supported unless it maintains a knowledge-seeking approach to the connection between data/algorithms and democracy/active citizenship. Projects which attach importance to cross-disciplinarity or intend to apply for external funding will be preferred.
The project or activity addresses one or more aspects of digitalisation, democracy and citizenship
Employees and PhD students at Aarhus University can apply for seed funding
The project or activity has a future perspective
Projects emphasizing interdisciplinarity or with the goal of achieving external funding are preferred
Any funding must be spend in 2023
PhD Students and employees at Aarhus University can apply for grants of up to 75,000 DKK. Applications must contain a brief description of the activity or project in question, including a description of the project outcome, a time frame, and a budget. Applications should not be more than about two pages long in total. Applications may be written in English or Danish.
Please send applications to email@example.com. Application deadline is 19 February 2023.
