In light of the complex situation that we all are living, IDEA’s Board has decided to modify the deadlines for the 2020 small grants calls. Instead of having two deadlines, one in spring and one in autumn, there will be a single deadline on June 30th, 2020 for two 1,000€ grants. We opted for this solution in an attempt to provide a little help to some researcher that may be out of job in this period and, for this reason, in real need of financial support.

We remind you that the grants will be assigned to two small projects, submitted by members 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(s) of the grant two to three weeks after the deadline.

Successful individuals may apply for further grants. Applications will be judged both on the importance of the new proposal and on the completion report relating to the grant already held.

Looking forward to receiving your proposals, we take the opportunity to remind all the members that have not renewed their subscription yet to please do that.
