Call for Proposals for ESF Exploratory Workshops. date limite 29 April 2008
Each year the European Science Foundation (ESF) awards funding for some 50-60 Exploratory Workshops across all scientific domains. With their small format, the Exploratory Workshops are a privileged venue for the articulation of emerging research needs in the Humanities.
Workshop proposals should show that convenors want to use them to open up new questions and directions in research or to explore emerging research fields. Proposals should demonstrate the potential for initiating follow-up research activities and/or developing future collaborative actions.
Interdisciplinary topics and topics related to the building and use of research infrastructures are also eligible.
Awards of up to max. 15000 EUR are intended to cover costs for small, interactive and output-oriented discussion meetings of maximum 30 participants to be held between 1 February and 31 December 2009.
