Organise an expert meeting at the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (KNIR)
KNIR Colloquia are small, exclusive expert meetings, hosted and funded by the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome. Their purpose is to offer early or mid-career academics from all fields the opportunity to improve their research profile by organising an international workshop in Rome on a topic central to their current research agenda. The Colloquium can host up to 10 senior and 15 junior scholars (including the convenor/applicant), in a 3 day programme.
Each year the KNIR can host a number of such Colloquia, depending on the available timeslots as specified on the KNIR website.
Early and mid-career academics
The KNIR Colloquia programme targets early and mid-career academics with a position as assistant professor (UD, tenured or not, indicatively with 3 to 15 years of academic employment). It aims to offer opportunities particularly to those academics who do not profit from other research funding (NWO, ERC etc.), and have a teaching load that currently prevents them from in-depth investments in their research profile.
See for more information and application the KNIR Colloquia website.
