Cofunded by the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, this fellowship scheme builds on the Trinity Long Room Hub’s existing short visiting research fellowship programme which has hosted over 140 fellows to date. Between October 2017 and September 2020, the programme will have appointed 9 fellows for a period of twelve months each over the course of 3 calls (1 call per year).
The cofund progamme will offer excellent experienced researchers an opportunity to acquire skills that will enhance their research and employability, deepen competences and widen their networks in a way that has significant long term impact on their chosen careers, whether they be in academia, industry or the public sector.
The programme is aligned to Trinity College Dublin’s five Arts and Humanities led research themes which the Trinity Long Room Hub supports: Identities in Transformation; Digital Humanities; Making Ireland; Creative Arts Practice and Manuscript, Book and Print Cultures.
The programme is central to the strategy of the Trinity Long Room Hub to advance and promote on an international level the excellence of the Arts and Humanities research environment in Ireland.
