Presentation of the call

The Cultural Heritage, Society and Ethics joint call (JPI CH  CHSE) aims at furthering the understanding of the relationship between cultural heritage – tangible, intangible, digital and natural – and major societal issues through transnational research projects.

JPI CH CHSE funded projects should explore the relationship between these three notions from a Social Sciences and Humanities perspective, thus being able to address current conceptual frameworks and facilitating the emergence of new ones. They should create conditions for new ways of engagement and dialogue between disciplines and stakeholders; study what the impact of these new ways in varied cultural contexts. Applicants are encouraged to adopt multi- and trans-disciplinary methodologies and approaches.

Important Call Documents

Topics

Research proposals must address at least one, and if possible both, of the two following themes (please consult the call text for further details):

  • Cultural Heritage and economic development. This theme explores the tensions between how cultural heritage can contribute to the development of sustainable experience-based economies without being put at risk and, concomitantly, how the non-utilitarian value of cultural heritage can be promoted in the context of its growing commercialisation.
  • Cultural Heritage and sustainable strategies. This theme explores the relationship between cultural heritage, democratic values and politics in a historical perspective, with a particular emphasis on the proliferation of conflicting narratives resulting from the use and misuse of cultural heritage, and the contribution of cultural heritage to sustainable and ethical behaviours and policies.
