DFF research networks | Humanities

The purpose of Research Networks | Humanities is to strengthen research areas which are geographically and institutionally scattered. The council also supports networks which could lead to larger projects or larger interdisciplinary groups of researchers working across institutions, including cultural research institutions and universities. DFF | Humanities only supports broadly based research networks with participation from Danish and foreign research institutions.

Applicant requirements

The group of applicants must as a minimum consist of two researchers at associate professor/senior researcher level. One of the applicants must be appointed project leader in advance, and thus have the grant responsibility towards DFF | Humanities. Funding is only offered to the establishment of new research networks.

The application

The network is expected to have a broad range of participants. The application must account for the purpose and central ideas of the network, research and research education activities, as well as for the network’s participating research environments. The maximum amount that can be awarded to research networks is DKK 700,000 (excl. overhead), and grants cannot be awarded for more than 2 years. You can as a maximum apply for two months of scientific/academic salaries in total.

The application must be submitted in Danish or English.

Your project must start between 1 July, 2017 and 1 January, 2018.
