Due Date: 5.10 2018. The Research Grants Programme is intended for early career scholars of all nationalities and in any field of the humanities. They must have a particular interest in cultural heritage and take a digital humanities approach.
For 2018, eligible projects must:
- focus on the First World War theme
- use openly licensed Europeana content (including but not limited to the Europeana 1914-1918 Collection)
- apply digital tools and digital humanities methods to address their specific research topic
Up to three (3) projects will be awarded up to EUR 8,000 each per project. Recipients must carry out their projects during the January – June 2019 semester, delivering the results by 30 June 2019. Project outcomes must be published under open licences.
Grants are intended to support each research project’s development and dissemination (e.g. the grant recipient’s time, travel to conferences and meetings, etc.). The Europeana Foundation will extensively promote their projects via its communication channels and, where possible, via its partner channels.
Applicants must hold a PhD, with no more than seven years of experience after the completion of their PhD. Projects must be hosted by institutions (e.g. university, research centre, library lab, museum) working in one of the EU Member States.
