Q: Can a group of people apply for the fellowship?
A: Yes, but they should nominate one person as the main applicant. They may use the text of the research proposal to explain the approach to collective work. The fee remains the same as for a single applicant (and can be divided at the applicant’s discretion).
Q: Can an individual submit multiple applications?
Q: Should applicants already be in contact with other institutions they want to involve in the project?
A: It is not necessary, but any tentative or confirmed plans for collaboration will be considered as an asset to the research proposal.
Q: Can applications include reference images by authors other than the applicant?
A: Yes, but they should be clearly credited.
Q: Can applicants include additional documents in their proposal, especially related to ongoing research projects?
A: Yes. However, there is no guarantee that any text outside the main 5-page PDF will be read, so the project should be sufficiently summarised within the PDF.
Q: Can applicants submit proposals that do not relate to the research themes for the three disciplines?
A: The 2017 fellowship programme is intended to support projects that respond directly to the research themes. Applicants can demonstrate a wide range of freedom and open-ended interpretation in their development of a research methodology and specific case study or territory of interest.
