Organise an expert meeting at the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (KNIR)

6 December 2019

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.
