Launch of the fifth call for proposals within the Europeana Research Grants Programme to support events around the theme Crowdsourcing and Research. This year, part of the programme’s budget is allocated to special prizes for tutorials showcasing innovative ways to use digital cultural heritage in Higher Education.
Research Event Grants
A total sum of €21,000 is available to assist in the planning, organisation and execution of events that bring together cultural heritage professionals and researchers to:
- address challenges and opportunities related to the reuse of cultural heritage data in research;
- build digital capacity of heritage professionals involved in research-related projects;
- encourage researchers to collaborate more closely with CHIs (e.g. in projects based on crowdsourcing).
The theme for organising these events is: Crowdsourcing & Research.
The Europeana Research Prize
The Covid-19 pandemic has proven the value of digital transformation. Digital events have replaced in-person ones, universities have adapted their courses into online classes. In line with Europeana’s mission of building capacity, we want to award a Europeana Research Prize (€2,000) to two cultural heritage or research institutions willing to make video tutorials between October 2021 and June 2022.
The aim is to show how digital cultural heritage can support Higher Education, facilitate interactive lessons, stimulate critical thinking and produce new knowledge. Proposals that foresee the reuse of Europeana resources and tools are particularly welcome. The video tutorials can be delivered in a language other than English; in this case, the video must be accompanied by English subtitles.
Deadline for applications: May 31, 2021
