Foundations in Germany, Italy and Sweden take a global perspective on cultural heritage and change

Top tips

  • Academic track record is not the main criteria—everyone working from postdoc level onwards can apply as the main applicant—but you should show an original approach to the idea of cultural heritage
  • Partners in the research team should play an equal role in developing the proposal, and teams should have members from at least two different low- and middle-income countries
  • Research teams can include perspectives from fields outside the humanities, cultural and social sciences
  • Projects should be applicable to different countries or regions, and reviewers will look for applicants interested in knowledge exchange
