The Joint Programming Initiative in Cultural Heritage and Global Change is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity for transnational proposals in the area of cultural heritage.

This "Heritage Plus" call is designed to generate new, research-based knowledge to promote the sustainable use and management of cultural heritage and so to meet societal challenges and contribute to the development on the society. The call aims to fund excellent collaborative, transnational, interdisciplinary, innovative R&D projects focussed mainly on tangible cultural heritage research, while not excluding the interlinked aspects of intangible and digital heritage. The call for pre-proposals will open on 3 March 2014 and the deadline for submission of the pre-proposals will be 28 April 2014.

The research topics on which the Heritage Plus Call is focused have been drawn from areas identified in the Strategic Research Agenda for the Joint Programming Initiative in Cultural Heritage and Global Change.

The call will support projects across three broad topics:

1. Safeguarding tangible cultural heritage and its associated intangible expressions
2. Sustainable strategies for protecting and managing cultural heritage
3. Use and re-use of all kinds of cultural heritage
