The ARIADNEplus project invites researchers to apply to participate in individual training visits to carry forwards their own research.  These opportunities are offered as part of ARIADNE’s Transnational Access (TNA) activities and calls for for applications were to be opened every six months, starting with the first call in September 2019 for placements in 2020.

The first call for applications is now closed. The second call (for 2020) for two Summer Schools at CNR, Pisa, Italy on Visual Media for the Documentation of Fieldwork and Artefacts and Implementing Interoperability has been postponed due to the current Corona (COVID-19) virus situation.  Likewise, we have also postponed the following call for in-house visits due in September 2020 for 2021 as travel and access to the relevant facilities is currently very difficult. 

When it is feasible to offer TNA again, we will welcome applications from individuals with a scientific interest and ability to benefit from training in archaeological research data management. Read more information about how to apply.

Sponsorship is available up to 700 euros per participant (to cover the cost of travel and accommodation) plus a tuition fee waiver. Bursaries are awarded on a competitive basis, according to the procedure described in the application pack and eligibility criteria, and based upon the quality of the applicant, their proposed project, and their personal statement. Between 5-10 bursaries are available annually from ARIADNEplus for each TNA centre. The call for in-house training on ‘Mapping existing datasets to CIDOC-CRM’ and ‘Data stewardship’ will open in September 2020 for access during 2021 at PIN, Prato and ADS, York. Please see the 2019 TNA Call for further details about these training courses.
