GERMAN-ITALIAN COOPERATION
IN THE FIELD OF HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES



Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft
Villa Vigoni





In cooperation with the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft Villa Vigoni announces annually a program (conferences, workshops for PhDs and postdocs, “close reading”) focused on issues aimed at a better understanding of the European culture, history and society.

Main feature of these discussions, which distinguishes them from other formats, is the intensive debate in small groups. Therefore, the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 20. The discussions should be in line with the institutional mission of Villa Vigoni, which is “to foster the relationship between Italy and Germany in the fields of scientific research, higher education and culture in a European perspective” and should allow the dialogue among young scientists. The program of the German-Italian Cooperation in the field of humanities and social sciences is supported by the DFG.

The announcement as well as the application form ("Antragsformular") for the year 2018 are available on this page for download.

TRILATERAL RESEARCH CONFERENCES



Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft
Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme
Villa Vigoni



Social sciences and humanities are inextricably linked to culture and language, which are both their object and their medium. With the aim of strengthening the dialogue and the formation of networks among German, French and Italian researchers in the field of humanities and social sciences over the long term, and of fostering the use of the German, the French and the Italian language in research, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme and Villa Vigoni have developed the program “Trilateral Research Conferences”, in which multilingualism plays a fundamental role.
A trilateral research conference is approved on the basis of an application which includes the subject, the purpose, the methodology, the work program and the expected participants. Three researchers, one from each of the participating countries, are responsible for the application and coordination of the project.
Every trilateral project consists of three conferences, preferably held on an annual basis, which take place in the Villa Vigoni. The program is open to projects concerning every subject in the field of humanities and social sciences. The participants of a trilateral conference are researchers coming from the three involved countries and their number is limited to 15.  The research team remains the same all over the three conferences.

The announcement as well as the application form for the year 2018 are available on this page for download.
