Research funding for networks and research programmes
To support the establishment of new collaborations across subject, faculty and disciplinary domain boundaries, in spring 2017 the Disciplinary Domain Board for the Humanities and Social Sciences distributed funding to three networks and two research programmes. The calls for proposals were issued in parallel with the development of the Centre for Integrated Research on Culture and Society, CIRCUS, and a new call is planned in the spring of 2018.
