Small project grants
The many cultural heritage collections in the Netherlands form an inexhaustible source of interesting research questions and conservation challenges. By tackling these, we can gain a better understanding of the material biography of heritage objects and use that knowledge to enrich the stories we tell about them and safeguard their future.
In order to unlock this research potential of and to stimulate research in and with Dutch heritage collections, NICAS offers a permanent funding scheme to support small projects in which museums and other heritage collections collaborate with academic partners.
BUDGET AND DEADLINE
The annual budget for this funding programme will be at least €50.000, but will be augmented from other sources whenever possible.
Applicants can submit proposals all year, with decisions on funding being made twice a year. The decision on the next round of grants will be made in October/November, which means that all proposals that are submitted before 18 March 2024 will be reviewed for this round.
