HERA matchmaking event for humanities research


The HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) Network invites researchers to apply for the participation in the Uses of the Past – Matchmaking Event taking place in Tallinn on 29 January 2015.

The aim of the Matchmaking Event is to present the Call for transnational humanities-led research proposals under the theme “Uses of the Past” to be formally announced early January 2015 and to facilitate the building of international research partnerships. With up to €23 million available, the research programme will fund new and exciting Humanities-centred projects on Uses of the Past involving researchers from four* or more countries.

The deadline to register your interest in attending the Matchmaking Event is 5 November 2014, 14:00 CET (Central European Time).

Eligible scholars are senior and early career researchers based in the following participating countries: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom.

To attend the Matchmaking event, scholars must submit an Expression of Interest for participating in the event consisting of a short project idea and a short CV. More information about this call and how to submit an application can be found on this matckmaking tool. The travel costs of the selected applicants can be reimbursed up to EUR 350.

Note that applicants that do not get invited to participate in the HERA Matchmaking Event still can apply in the HERA JRP UP call and so can researchers who have not submitted an Expression of Interest to participate!!
