David Gleeson to Participate in Humanities in the European Research Area Event

After a competitive process, Professor David Gleeson has been selected to attend the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) ‘Uses of the Past’ Matchmaking  Event in Tallinn, Estonia on 29 January 2015.  As one of only 300 scholars invited to attend, he will gain (and share back with the Northumbria History Programme) vital knowledge about the application process and  will gain access to a wider group of European scholars for collaborative, transnational bids to this scheme. 

More from the HERA webpage:

The aim of the Matchmaking Event is to present the Call for transnational humanities-led research proposals under the theme “Uses of the Past” to be formally announced in January 2015 and to facilitate the building of international research partnerships. With up to €23 million available, the research programme will fund new and exciting Humanities-centred projects on Uses of the Past involving researchers from four or more countries.

Eligible scholars are senior and early career researchers based in the following participating countries: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom.

To attend the Matchmaking event, scholars had to submit a project idea fitting with the Uses of the Past theme via the application form. . . .

Congratulations to David!
