Europeana Research Grants Programme 2018

25 September 2018 | Bethany Reynard

Explore the Europeana 1914-1918 Collection and to submit projects that are transnational in scope. The collection hosts 400,000 items aggregated from Europeana partner libraries, archives and museums, including over 600 hours of video, alongside 200,000 items of content contributed by individuals both online and during the 200+ collection days. The community collection days, organised by Europeana and other institutions throughout Europe, invited people to share their stories and objects from the First World War, which were then digitised by professional archivists.
Applicants are also invited to explore the selection of newspapers from the First World War period in the Europeana platform, which offers over 20,000 openly licensed records.

A call for project proposals has now been launched to commemorate the end of the centennial and to highlight the relevance of the Europeana 1914-18 collection for research. The Europeana Foundation has allocated a budget of 25,000 Euros to support promising early-career scholars in the Humanities, who can benefit from up to 8,000 Euros per project.

To find out more about the research grants, including eligibility, terms and conditions and how to submit a proposal, please visit their call for submissions. The deadline for project proposals is 5 October 2018.
