Applications for the Knowledge Management Fund 2020 are open. The Knowledge Management Fund is the Knowledge Platform’s instrument to financially support activities arising from its network.

The KMF is a €300,000 annual fund that awards grants for 6-month projects of up to €15,000 for events, research ideas and other initiatives that contribute to improving the quality of knowledge generated by the SRoL field, and its subsequent uptake. This year’s Thematic Headline is “Harnessing Potential”.
