The CENDARI Visiting Research Fellowships are intended to support and stimulate historical research in the two pilot areas of medieval European culture and the First World War, by facilitating access to key archives, specialist knowledge and collections in CENDARI host institutions. The CENDARI Transnational Access programme is financed by the European Union.

In particular, the CENDARI project is committed to hosting early career scholars who aim to apply digital humanities methods to their historical enquiry. The fellowships are particularly designed to support researchers from countries without equivalent facilities and early career scholars with limited access to these research infrastructures.

Applicants are advised to consider the Eligibility and Award Criteria for the Call carefully when selecting their preferred host institution(s). The descriptions of the above institutions and contact details for the CENDARI project within each of the institutions are included in Annex 1 to the Terms & Conditions.

The Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities, Germany

GCDH is the cross-fac­ulty in­sti­tu­tion of the Georg-Au­gust-Uni­ver­sität Göttin­gen that co­or­di­nates, carries out and de­vel­ops re­search, teach­ing, and in­fra­struc­ture ac­tiv­i­ties at the Göttin­gen Re­search Cam­pus in the field of Dig­i­tal Hu­man­i­ties (DH). DH was hereby defined as the area of research, teaching, and development concerned with the intersection of computing and the various disciplines of the Humanities. In the case of the GCDH, however, the area of interest was further extended to include more broadly the application of computing approaches to the Social Sciences, Economic Sciences, and Law, as well as research on the effects of the digitisation of society from the point of view of the aforementioned disciplines. This was due, in part, to the participation at the GCDH of the faculties of Social Science and the Business and Law Schools, in addition to the faculties of Philosophy (in a coordinating role) and Theology as well as the Göttingen State and University Library. The GCDH is also closely collaborating with other member institutions of the Göttingen Research Campus, such as the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the Herzog August Library in Wolfenbüttel, and the Max Planck Society and Max Planck Digital Library. DH was hereby defined as the area of research, teaching, and development concerned with the intersection of computing and the various disciplines of the Humanities.

Frequently Asked Questions


What types of projects have been funded by the CENDARI Transnational Access programme in the past?

CENDARI has funded transnational research in the two CENDARI pilot areas of World War 1 and Medieval European Culture over two previous calls. Please follow this link for a list of research projects that the CENDARI Transnational Access programme has funded in 2013 and 2014.


What duration of fellowship period will the CENDARI project fund?

CENDARI will provide funding for research fellowship of between 6 and 12 weeks. However, shorter durations can be proposed under certain circumstances and will be subject for discussion with the host institution.


Can I discuss my proposal ahead of the application date with my preferred host institution?

Yes, this is very welcome and all potential applicants are encouraged to do so. Contact details are provided in the Terms and Conditions document (Annex 1) or, alternatively, potential applicants can send an email directly to info@cendari.eu.


I am currently studying for my PhD. Can I apply for a CENDARI fellowship?

Yes – applications from PhD students/early career stage researchers are particularly welcome under the CENDARI Transnational Access Programme. You should include a reference/letter of support from your Ph.D. supervisor with your application.


I teach during term-time and thus would need to pursue a CENDARI fellowship during the summer months. Is this possible?

Yes, this is possible and you should discuss the timing of your fellowship directly with the host institution to determine a mutually agreeable time. Previous fellows have performed their research during the summer months and returned to the host institution during term time to deliver their fellowship lecture.
