Results of the Mini-GRANTS call in the Heritage PRA (First edition)
We are pleased to announce the results of the first edition of the Mini-GRANTS call within the framework of the "Incentive Program" of the Heritage Priority Research Area (PRA).
The call was addressed to academic teachers, research-assistance staff, as well as doctoral students of the Jagiellonian University. In the "Call announcement" it was assumed that Mini-GRANTS will in particular support:
- carrying out preliminary theoretical or empirical research;
- performing other auxiliary activities related to conducting research;
- didactic activities, in particular the ones leading to the inclusion of students and doctoral students in research teams;
- activities that form cooperation with the university environment, related to the dissemination of results of research on heritage and cultural diversity.
The applications were collected and handled through the newly implemented application submission and evaluation system "strefaid.uj.edu.pl". The evaluation of the submitted applications was coordinated by the Evaluation Committee composed of the members of the Heritage PRA Executive Team. Each application was assessed by two independent reviewers selected from the Heritage PRA Expert Database by combining the thematic scope of the application with an expert specialization. The applications were assessed on the basis of the criteria available in the detailed call announcement. The reviewers remain anonymous to the applicants, while both reviewers' comments and obtained scores will be kept available to applicants in the application system. The maximum score the application could obtain in the evaluation was 100 points. The average score from the reviews was adopted as the ranking criterion. Proposals with budget that includes costs inconsistent with the call regulations, e.g. remuneration for research tasks financed from other sources (§ 5) or remuneration for project coordination (§ 12.1.1) will receive funding reduced by these amounts (in the case of receiving funding from budget modification the applicant may resign from accepting financing and implementing the project - § 17.3).
The Commission approved funding for the 74 highest-scoring applications for a total amount of PLN 855,611.27. The list of Mini-GRANTS that received funding is presented below. Shortly, you will receive individual messages from us with the decision.
Applicants who have not been able to receive funding in this edition of the call are kindly encouraged to submit applications in the next call, which will be announced in March 2021.
