We are happy to inform you that the IDEA small grant 2020 has been assigned to Giovanni Almagno, for a project concerning the update and increase of content in EAGLE related to the epigraphical documentation of Regio IV.

Since only one grant has been assigned, the Board decided to open a new call for a 1,000€ grant with a deadline on December 31st, 2020. We remind you that the grant will be assigned to a small project, submitted by a member of the associations, coherent with the scope of IDEA’s activities, as stated in the Article 5 of our Charter:

Art. 5 – “The goal of the association is the promotion of the use of advanced methodologies in the research, study, enhancement, and publication of “written monuments,” beginning with those of antiquity, in order to increase knowledge of them at multiple levels of expertise, from that of specialists to that of the occasional tourist. In order to reach its statutory goals, the association promotes, organizes, and manages conventions, conferences, exhibits (including virtual exhibits), prizes, and training courses (including online courses); it conducts editorial activities; it promotes and supports the maintenance and efficiency of the portal created by the European project EAGLE (European network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy); it participates in and promotes the participation of its members in projects and initiatives, including in collaboration with third parties; it promotes initiatives in the interest of its members; it performs and encourages studies and research; it collects data and news of interest to the activity of its members; it carries out consultations in favor of its members; it more generally carries out all activities useful for the achievement of the goals that the association proposes.”

Every application should include a budget breakdown and an explanation of how their project fits IDEA’s priorities.

The Board will evaluate all the proposals received by the deadline and communicate the winner of the grant two to three weeks after the deadline.

Looking forward to receiving your proposals!
