The HERA Joint Research Programme (HERA JRP) partners have launched a joint call for transnational Collaborative Research Projects (CRPs) under the theme: “Cultural Encounters”. By launching the HERA JRP call for proposals, the humanities funding organisations in 18 countries want to create opportunities for collaborative, trans-national humanities-led research that will result in new academic insights relevant to major social, cultural and political challenges facing Europe. Proposed research may draw upon insights and methodologies from a wide spectrum of arts and humanities disciplines. Although humanities-driven, proposals may involve contributions from other research domains where appropriate

The “Cultural Encounters” call has been started at 01-01-2012 and will end at 31-12-2016.

Programme is intended for international consortiums consisting of no less than 3 members from different EU countries, participating in the programme.

Participants from Lithuania shall be funded by Research Council of Lithuania.

The following countries have committed to the HERA JRP on Cultural Encounters: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden and United Kingdom.
