Winners of the Europeana Research Grants Programme 2019 revealed

2019 marks the fourth call for proposals within the Europeana Research Grants Programme and the first year with a call intended to support events. The theme of this year’s call was Digital Cultural Heritage for Open Science, which Europeana felt offered valuable food for thought about the limits and potential of the reuse of digital collections as a source for research. 

The winners are:

  • The University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Masterclasses for Open Digital Cultural Heritage, a proposal submitted by Dr Giovanni Colavizza, Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities. 
  • The Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium: A Research Engine for Linked (Open) Data Research on the Circulation of European and non-European Art. 1600-2000, a proposal submitted by Koenraad Brosens, full professor in Art History. 
  • The Swedish National Heritage Board, Sweden: Enriching metadata – Enriching Research, a proposal submitted by Dr Åsa Larsson, project leader, in collaboration with Dr Anna Foka, Associate Professor in Information Technology and the Humanities and Leader/Manager of the Digital Humanities Initiative at the Institute for Archives, Museums and Libraries (ABM)  at Uppsala University.
  • The Digital Repository of Ireland: FAIR and Open Data. The opportunities for Humanities researchers, a proposal submitted by Dr Kathryn Cassidy, Software Engineer.
