Applying for European Research Funding in the Humanities

Monday 5 December 11.00 -12.30 followed by lunch
One to one sessions available 14.00-16.00
Dr Giancarlo Pichillo
EU funding is a process. At its heart, you need a good team and a powerful network. Above all, you need a compelling idea. Innovativeness, originality, impact, research excellence, feasibility: no EU-funded proposal will lack these basic characteristics. This is a challenge that researchers and scholars engaged with social sciences and humanities need to tackle in order to let our disciplines survive in the current historical context.
Led by Dr Giancarlo Pichillo from the University of Sienna this session will specifically help you develop EU funding applications but also help you to construct better, more confident funding applications in general. Giancarlo has extensive experience of writing EU funding proposals (for example, Horizon 2020, FP7, Creative Europe etc) and project managing EU-funded projects. He is currently, the project manager of "Playing Identities, Performing Heritage", funded by the Creative Europe Programme (Small Scale Cultural Cooperation Projects), coordinated by the University of Siena.
If you are interested in attending the workshop and/or meeting Giancarlo for a one to one session, please contact Lynne Bennett.
