Funding call: Heritage in Changing Environments

The new JPI CH funding call ‘Heritage in Changing Environments’ is now open and full guidance is available on the JPICH website.

town-2430571_1280The call is designed to support the development of new, research-based ideas and knowledge in response to the rapidly and widely changing context with which heritage and heritage practice is faced. It invites research projects that help cultural heritage to meet societal challenges and contribute to the development of society.

Three broad categories of the changing environments of heritage are addressed in this call: changing (physical) environments; changing social and economic environments; and changing political and cultural environments. Projects funded through this call will use cultural heritage to address global challenges such as the impacts of climate change, environmental deterioration, migration, demographic and social change, and diasporic change, urbanisation and de-ruralisation, economic inequity, changing perceptions and sustainability.

The main eligibility criteria are:

  • Duration of projects: up to 36 months
  • Each project proposal must comprise of at least three research teams, each based in an eligible institution in a different country participating in the Changing Environments Call. The maximum number of research teams in a project proposal is five
  • Applications must be in accordance with the eligibility requirements relevant for the national research teams in the transnational research consortia and not exceed the maximum budgets to be requested therein.

All proposals are to be submitted through the JPICH website. The deadline for submitting proposals is 30 November 2017, 14:00 CEST.

                                                                   Connaught Place, Delhi at Sunset

Researchers are invited to apply (via an Expression of Interest) to participate in a workshop on ‘Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India’.

Organised in partnership with the Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR), the event will bring together academic experts from both countries to address an issue of growing importance as India seeks to preserve and position its rich cultural history within the context of an emerging urban landscape. It will build on a joint AHRC-ICHR workshop and small networking call held in 2015 by providing the opportunity for researchers to address challenges related to the place of cultural heritage in an increasingly urban environment in greater depth.

More details on eligibility, call document and application process can be found on the Website. Applications to attend are via a Smart-Survey Questionnaire.

Closing Date is 4pm (BST) 26/04/17.

The Workshop will take place in Delhi on 24th-25th May 2017.

For more information or in the event of any queries, please contact Catherine Bond/Gemma Evans:  newtonfund@ahrc.ac.uk or telephone 01793 416000.
