Mondriaan Fund: Grant for International Collaborative Projects with Heritage Institutes

Deadline: 20 October 2017

The Mondriaan Fund is seeking applications for its grant program entitled “Grant for International Collaborative Projects with Heritage Institutes” that is intended for one or more Dutch cultural heritage institutions that collaborate with foreign cultural heritage institutions in research projects in fields covered by both of their collections. The grant may be used in the development phase to pay for the travel and accommodation expenses incurred by researchers and curators, and towards the costs of presenting the study results in the Netherlands.

The objective of this program is to promote new insights, research and international collaborations in the field of cultural heritage whose importance will draw international attention and which will result in a presentation.

The amount of a Grant for International Collaborative Projects with Heritage Institutes will be determined per application.
