The Cultural Heritage, Society and Ethics joint call (JPI CH CHSE) aims at furthering the understanding of the relationship between cultural heritage – tangible, intangible, digital and natural – and major societal issues through transnational research projects. The call will be launched on 1 March 2022 and will consist of two compulsory stages (pre-proposals then, full proposals). Applicants are invited to keep an eye on this webpage for the updated information.
As part of the Joint Programming Initiative Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPI CH), the ANR and several other funding agencies, supported by the Fondation des Sciences du Patrimoine (FSP), are launching a transnational research call on “Heritage, Society and Ethics”.
JPI CH CHSE funded projects should explore the relationship between these three notions from a Social Sciences and Humanities perspective, thus being able to address current conceptual frameworks and facilitating the emergence of new ones. They should create conditions for new ways of engagement and dialogue between disciplines and stakeholders; study what the impact of these new ways in varied cultural contexts. Applicants are encouraged to adopt multi- and trans-disciplinary methodologies and approaches. Research proposals must address at least one, and if possible both, of the two following themes:
- Cultural Heritage and economic development. This theme explores the tensions between how cultural heritage can contribute to the development of sustainable experience-based economies without being put at risk and, concomitantly, how the non-utilitarian value of cultural heritage can be promoted in the context of its growing commercialisation.
- Cultural Heritage and sustainable strategies. This theme explores the relationship between cultural heritage, democratic values and politics in a historical perspective, with a particular emphasis on the proliferation of conflicting narratives resulting from the use and misuse of cultural heritage, and the contribution of cultural heritage to sustainable and ethical behaviours and policies.
Each consortium must involve at least three scientific partners from three different countries participating in the call and at least one Associate Partner (policymakers, NGOs, communities, etc.). These elements will be verified during the eligibility check at stage 1 of the JPI CH CHSE call.
The countries participating in the call are Belarus, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
