The EU funded project “Research Infrastructure on Religious Studies” (ReIReS) offers scholars from any academic discipline the opportunity to spend typically two weeks in one of fourteen outstanding European research centres (libraries and archives) in Mainz, Hamburg, Leuven, Paris, Bologna, and Sofia to carry out their research project in Historical Religious Studies and use the relevant collections for the history of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Ancient and non-European Religions.
The call is open for Scholars, docs, postdocs, senior scholars, librarians and curators of special collections from Europe and from countries associated to Horizon2020.
ReIReS grants to users support for travel and accommodation. Grant holders spend usually two weeks at the provider institution with the constant tutorial of experts of the host provider who are specialists in the research field for which access has been requested, and who assist and guide the use and interpretation of the data.
Scholars throughout Europe are invited to apply for a transnational access scholarship to consult each of these special collections and libraries (excluding those belonging to the user country). Applications are welcome before February 16, 2020. For further information and the application form, see https://reires.eu/call-for-proposals-tasc-and-taad/
