Field of Focus IIICalls

The Research Council invites applications for funds from the University of Excellence to strengthen the profile of the Field of Focus 3 and Heidelberg University in the following areas:

  • Cultural Heritage
  • Knowledge research with focus on questions of validity
  • Transformation Processes (Environmental Humanities)
  • Digital Humanities with a focus on Digital Heritage and Digital Linguistics
  • Area Studies

A number of larger projects already receive funding; the call for funds is therefore mostly issued in addition to these. In the formats listed below, support can be provided in the areas of Digital Humanities and conferences on the main Field of Focus 3 research topics. The funds for transfer measures are not limited to the above-mentioned focal points. The Emerging Ideas Fund is explicitly intended for the development of new, larger project initiatives.

Nele Schneidereit will give advice on the funding formats and application procedures at the Research Council office in the Field of Focus 3.
