Research cultural heritage, society and ethics with European partners

Apply for funding to research cultural heritage, society and ethics with European partners.

You must:

  • be based at a UK research organisation eligible for AHRC funding
  • work with researchers from at least two other participating countries.

Applications from early career researchers are particularly encouraged.

The full economic cost of the UK elements of a project can be up to €250,000. AHRC will fund 80% of the full economic cost. The total fund available is €1 million. Projects must last between 24 and 36 months.

There are two complementary themes:

Cultural heritage and economic development

Researchers could explore:

  • how cultural heritage can contribute to the development of sustainable experience-based economies without being put at risk
  • how the non-utilitarian value of cultural heritage can be promoted in the context of its growing commercialisation.

Cultural heritage and sustainable strategies

Researchers could explore the relationship between cultural heritage, democratic values and politics from a historical perspective. They should emphasise:

  • the construction of conflicting narratives resulting from the use and misuse of cultural heritage
  • the contribution of cultural heritage to sustainable and ethical behaviours and policies.
