HERA Announces Winners of its First Joint Research Programme
Posted: 5 January, 2009
The HERA network has announced that approximately €6.4 million has been committed in grants to nineteen collaborative research projects.
In 2009, the HERA Network launched the first Joint Research Programme (HERA JRP) under two themes ‘Cultural Dynamics: Inheritance and Identity’ and ‘Humanities as a Source of Creativity and Innovation’.
The programme is co-funded by 13 humanities research councils in Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden and United Kingdom and the European Commission under the ERA-NET Plus scheme. Together they have pooled national and European funding to set up a common pot funding mechanism.
