The SFC Saltire Emerging Researcher Scheme for the Arts & Humanities is a programme run by SGSAH with funding from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) to enable research collaborations between Scotland and Europe through a series of research exchanges, with researchers travelling from Europe to Scotland, and from Scotland to Europe. The overall aim of the scheme is to promote mobility between Scotland and European research partners in order to strengthen existing, and seed future, research relationships.
It is anticipated that the SFC funding will support 10 researchers in total, with additional cohort members deriving from SGSAH’s AHRC- and SFC-funded PhD researchers.
The scheme is structured around SGSAH’s Strategic Themes and Priority Areas, full details of which are available in the scheme Guidelines:
- Modern Languages
- Celtic Languages and Studies
- Creative Industries/Economies
- Cultural and Heritage Studies
- Environmental Humanities
- Equalities, Diversity, Inclusion and Social Justice in an Arts & Humanities context
The exchanges will take place between January and August 2022. Exchange proposals may include in-person, hybrid and online aspects, and can last from one to six months. The scheme also includes an in-person, hybrid and online cohort development programme to nurture PhD and ECR perspectives, skills and qualities. Exchange researchers will additionally have the opportunity to showcase their work through SGSAH’s new online research showcase, and participate in the 2022 SGSAH International Summer School.
