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 Bologna, Hamburg, Leuven, Mainz, Sofia, and Paris to carry out their research project in Historical Religious Studies.
The call is also open for curators of special collections, who need to enlarge their knowledge in dealing with documents concerning historical religious studies to manage other collections of documents.
ReIReS grants to users support for travel and accommodation. Users 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 August 30, 2020.
