Description
This call for funding is part of a broader international funding framework entitled "Global Issues - Integrating Different Perspectives", which aims to enable international research collaboration and to generate new insights on understudied issues of global relevance. The different thematic areas that are addressed through this overarching funding scheme are oriented towards those challenges that have been acknowledged by the United Nations' sustainable development agenda as requiring specific action. "Global Issues" aims to stimulate and strengthen collaboration between researchers based in different parts of the world who usually do not join forces.Thematic Call: Global Issues - Integrating Different Perspectives on Heritage and ChangeBased on various exchanges with the research community from a broad set of disciplines within the humanities and social sciences, the foundations encourage multilateral research teams from all relevant fields of study to investigate the processes and research questions of cultural heritage - heritage as an agent for and an object of change.Applications may address one or more of the following areas of special interest:
- Theoretical development of heritage including conceptual analyses of what is regarded as 'cultural heritage' and 'change' and by whom.
- Contributions of cultural heritage to an economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable future.
- Consequences of the use of ICTs in relation to cultural heritage.
- Threats to heritage such as war, terrorism, or climate change.The Foundations strongly encourage research that moves beyond traditional questions and approaches and significantly advances the current state of the art.This call for funding targets mainly the humanities, cultural and social sciences, but by no means excludes the involvement of other disciplines. Eligibility Each research team may consist of 3 to 5 researchers, involving at least one researcher based in Sweden, Germany or Italy and two researchers based in non-European Low and Mid-dle Income Countries (LMICs) (for a four-or five-person consortium: one or two researchers based in High Income Countries (HICs), two or three based in LMICs).
