EuroClio Regranting Scheme
Regional Cooperation: Call for Applications
In our diverse European society we cannot escape history when seeking to understand the present in our search for a common future. EuroClio and the Evens Foundation have been working together for a few years now aiming to open up spaces to challenge dominant national narratives and to engage with the complexity, multiplicity and transnationality of European history and history teaching. We believe this is a necessary first step that allows and supports educators and their students to discover common positions or overcome divisions while acknowledging existing differences.
We also believe that supporting transnational exchange and peer learning between history educators from the bottom-up, increases the probability that initiatives also answer educators’ real needs on the ground. We hope it will lead to more transnational cooperation between history educators and EuroClio’s member associations to enhance history education in Europe.
What are we looking for?
With the Regional Cooperation call we will support EuroClio members to develop or strengthen the transnational dimension of their capacity building activities such as workshops, summer schools or seminars. Regional Cooperation grants are dedicated to cross-border professional development, scaling up the already existing activities and making them more accessible for regional partners (i.e. a summer school, teacher training event).
The activity should address at least one of the objectives of the EU operating grant that EuroClio is receiving. These are: 1) Building the capacity of national or regional organisations working in the field of European Remembrance. 2) Building and increasing the capacity of network partners to develop coherent and coordinated activities to make history education more multiperspective and/or transnational. 3) Expand the EuroClio’s reach, including new partners. 4) A measurable increase in the impact of the EuroClio’s activities in the field of European Remembrance.
We offer 8 grants of 6.000 euros. The grant covers up to 5.000 euros hard costs (which can be used for travel, stay, accommodation, translation, interpretation, printing and other costs where you get a receipt) and a 1.000 euros fee for the organisers. No co-financing is required.
