research grants programme

The Europeana Research Grants programme awards funding for events that can bring together cultural heritage professionals and researchers

We recognise the huge value of linking researchers with cultural heritage institutions. Bringing Europe’s galleries, museums, libraries, and archives within digital reach allows researchers to access a much wider scope of material and opinion. The Europeana Research Grants programme supports this effort by awarding funding for events that can bring together cultural heritage professionals and researchers.

The call for Europeana Research Grants is currently closed. Please check back later for further information about call dates.
