Berlin, 21 February 2012

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

The list of participants can be downloaded here. 

The aim of the Matchmaking Event is to present the Call for transnational humanities-led research proposals under the theme “Cultural Encounters” to be formally announced early February 2012 and to faciliate the building of international research partnerships. With up to €18 million available, the research programme will fund new and exciting Humanities-centred projects on Cultural Encounters involving researchers from three or more countries.

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

To attend the Matchmaking event, scholars had to submit a project idea fitting with the Cultural Encounters theme via the application form (click "Register" button on the left side menu). The project idea will then be evaluated by the HERA JRP CE Board members. The travel costs of the invited 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 "Cultural Encounters".
