First Call for Biblissima+ Partner Projects 2021-2022

Biblissima+ is launching its first call for partner projects. These joint efforts in research, documentation, digitisation and valorization operations focusing on historical collections of manuscripts, early printed documents or other text-bearing objects, must bring together at least one cultural heritage institution and one educational and/or research institution. The results of these projects should be open, interoperable and integrated into the resources of the Biblissima+ portal.

These joint operations, called "Biblissima+ Partner Projects", will be conducted once a selection has been made from all eligible proposals submitted to Biblissima+ in response to the year 1 of the call for projects (2021-2022). The full regulations can be downloaded below. Proposals are open to international applicants under the conditions specified in the regulations.

The budget allocated to each operation by Biblissima+ will be between €10,000 and €70,000 for a given annual call. Biblissima+ reserves the right to select projects with a budget of more than €70,000 and to carry them out over two or more years (maximum five). As a guide, it is envisaged that five to ten projects will be selected per year.

Project proposals must be sent in digital format (pdf) to the email address on 28 February 2022 before midnight.

Incomplete applications or those sent in any other form will not be considered.

No proposal will be accepted after the deadline.
