UK-Ireland Collaboration in the Digital Humanities Research Grants

The Irish Research Council (IRC) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) are pleased to announce a call for Research Grants as part of their UK-Ireland Collaboration in Digital Humanities.


This call aims to support large, collaborative UK-Ireland projects that achieve a transformational impact in the digital humanities through innovative, multidisciplinary research that engages extensively with wider partners. 

Specifically, the call aims to support a diverse range of projects that:

  • Build on the momentum of the research networks around defined thematic areas which generate new lines of enquiry and stimulate new debate;
  • Build and consolidate new, inclusive partnerships between researchers and stakeholders in the UK and Ireland through collaborative research projects;
  • Deliver innovative, interdisciplinary and integrated research projects that are appropriately tailored to the themes being addressed;
  • Are genuinely inclusive and collaborative and involve a balance of Research Organisations and stakeholders in both countries which will result in a transformational impact;
  • Promote the sharing of best practice and knowledge exchange between institutions in the UK and Ireland, and clearly demonstrate the specific added value of enhanced collaboration in the Digital Humanities.

The projects should take innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to explore the following broad and inclusive themes:  

  • Digital Humanities, Emerging Technologies and Research Practices  
  • Digital Humanities and Social Innovation 
  • Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage  
  • Digital Humanities and the Creative Industries 

Please note that attendance at the Digital Humanities Networking Workshop (October 2019) and/or an award from the Research Networking Call is not a pre-condition of application to this call.
