Eight transnational research consortiums will receive funding in the programme Digital Heritage

The JPICH Digital Heritage Call is the first of a series of four joint transnational calls within the context of the JPI Cultural Heritage. The JPICH Digital Heritage Call for Proposals was formally published on April 24, 2017.

At the deadline (June 22, 2017) 34 proposals were submitted. Three of these proposals were declared not eligible by either the handling agency or the national funding partners. All eligible proposals were first remotely assessed on the formal evaluation criteria defined in the call by at least two independent international peer reviewers. An International Assessment Panel carefully discussed and ranked the eligible proposals.

The panel recommended 11 applications for funding. Due to the limited amount of funding available, not all of the interesting and valuable applications can be supported. As a result, eight transnational research projects in the JPI Cultural Heritage programme will receive around 4 million euro and start in 2018. This represents a success rate of just over 25%.

The eight projects that will receive funding approach the central theme from a variety of perspectives and scientific disciplines. They produce theoretically, methodologically and technologically innovative research outcomes, as well as output that is relevant for stakeholders and policy makers inside and outside of Europe.

The eight transnational consortia that will carry out their projects are being financed by science funders from eight countries that are involved with the JPI Cultural Heritage.
