Please note that the call for participating in the matchmaking event is now closed.

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 in 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.

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 had to submit a project idea fitting with the Uses of the Past theme via the application form. The project idea is now being evaluated by the HERA JRP UP Board. The travel costs of the selected applicants will be covered up to a set maximum. Further information on both this and the application process can be found here.

In case of questions concerning the call and the Matchmaking event please contact your National Contact Point for HERA JRP "Uses of the Past".

Please note that even if you are not selected, you can still submit an application to the HERA JRP call. Attendance at the matchmaking event is not a prerequisite to applying to the HERA Joint Research Programme Uses of the Past.

Researchers who have not submitted an Expression of Interest to participate in the MME can of course also submit an application in the call for transnational research proposals that will be opened in January.

In addition, HERA has opened up a separate online partner search facility accessible via the HERA website (for more information see http://heranet.info/online-partner-search-tool).


* Note that a final decision about the required consortium size has not yet been made by the HERA JRP UP Board.
