Seed funds for Slovakia promote cutting-edge research collaborations and help to deepen partnerships between MIT faculty and their Slovakian counterparts.

The MIT-Slovakia Seed Fund

Through an annual call for proposals, the fund promotes the exchange between faculty and students at MIT and at universities and public research institutions in Slovakia. The maximum award is $30,000. The program is funded by the Ministry of Investments, Regional Development and Informatization of the Slovak Republic and will launch in 2021.

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • propose a balanced exchange between MIT and Slovakia
  • involve students and young scientists
  • are new or entering a new phase
  • are likely to be sustainable beyond the seed fund sponsorship period

The fund is open to all disciplines. MISTI will host two webinars, one in late spring and one in summer 2021, for interested participants, with links and dates to be provided on this page – stay tuned!

The MIT-Slovakia Seed Fund is a part of MISTI Global Seed Funds. All general MISTI Global Seed Funds criteria, application and evaluation procedures apply.
