We are pleased to inform you that a new CHANSE (Collaboration of Humanities and Social Sciences in Europe) programme supporting research in the area of Humanities and Social Sciences will be launched at the beginning of 2021. It will be implemented by 27 research funding institutions from 24 European countries and coordinated by the NCN. The CHANSE consortium has acquired a co-funding of EUR 10 million from the Horizon 2020 EU Framework Programme. The main goal of the CHANSE programme is to announce a call for international research projects: Transformations: Social and cultural dynamics in the digital age. The total call budget amounts to 36 million euro and includes ca. EUR 26 M of national allocation complemented by the co-funding from the European Commission. The call will be pre-announced at the beginning of 2021 and the first information about the call topic will soon be published on the NCN website.

The CHANSE program has been co-created by the HERA and NORFACE networks  supporting research in the field of Humanities and Social Sciences, respectively. The CHANSE's goal is to finance high-quality international research projects and inspire collaboration between researchers and various stakeholder groups, such as: NGOs, cultural institutions, legislators, policy makers, schools, etc.
