Short Call Abstract:

The aim of the call is to address two complementary themes. Applicants are invited to submit research proposals responding to either or both of the call themes.

Theme 1: Cultural heritage and economic development

The first theme explores the tensions between how cultural heritage can contribute to the development of sustainable experience-based economies without being put at risk and, concurrently, how the nonutilitarian value of cultural heritage can be promoted in the context of its growing commercialisation.

Theme 2: Cultural heritage and sustainable strategies

The second theme explores the relationship between cultural heritage, democratic values, and politics in a historical perspective, with a particular emphasis on the construction of conflicting narratives resulting from the use and misuse of cultural heritage, and on the contribution of cultural heritage to sustainable and ethical behaviours and policies.

SSH aspects (keywords/disciplines):

Cultural heritage, economics, history, political science, democracy, ethics, behavioural sciences.

* Research applicants are encouraged to include in their projects researchers from a range of areas and fields of research rarely associated with research on cultural heritage. They are also encouraged to highlight the knowledge chain, by including diverse stakeholders and end-users in order to foster an implementation-orientated approach, such as cultural organizations, public authorities, community groups and policy-/decision-makers.

Specific participation requirements (optional):

Only beneficiaries eligible according to the rules of the national funding agencies participating in the JPI CH CHSE call are eligible to apply, irrespective of their nationality.

The project consortium must involve at least three Principal Investigators from three different participating countries and at least one Associate Partner.
