  • conduct short research periods at universities and other Italian institutes with a close research focus (such as libraries, archives, research centres etc.);
  • use digital sources with fee-based access of Italian universities and other Italian institutions (e.g. archives, museums);
  • participate in virtual or physical conferences and congresses in Italy by presenting their own research project.

Funding is granted only after written confirmation by the Italien-Zentrum. There is no legal entitlement to the granting of funding.
