Visiting grants for transnational access to ELEXIS Infrastructures
ELEXIS is a European Infrastructure which aims to foster cooperation and knowledge exchange between different research communities in lexicography in order to bridge the gap between lesser-resourced languages and those with advanced e-lexicographic experience.
In the visiting grants, researchers/lexicographers within the EU member states or associated countries are invited to apply for free-of-charge access to and support in one of the below mentioned lexicographical infrastructures.
A key activity of the project is to provide transnational access to existing lexicographical milieus in Europe including the resources, tools and expertise of these groups.
Via short and long-term visiting grants (between 5 and 15 days), researchers will be able to experiment with and work on data in a context of mutual knowledge exchange.
Researchers are invited to apply for free-of-charge access to and support in one of the 9 ELEXIS infrastructures:
- ELEXIS-SL: Institut Jozef Stefan (JSI, Slovenia)
- ELEXIS-AT: Austrian Academy of Sciences (OEAW, Austria)
- ELEXIS-RS: Belgrade Center for Digital Humanities (BCDH, Serbia)
- ELEXIS-BG: Institute of Bulgarian Language Lyubomir Andreychin (IBL, Bulgaria)
- ELEXIS-HU: Hungarian Academy of Sciences (RILMTA, Hungary)
- ELEXIS-IL: K Dictionaries (KD, Israel)
- ELEXIS-DK: Det Danske Sprog- og Litteraturselskab (DSL, Denmark)
& University of Copenhagen (UCPH, Denmark)
- ELEXIS-DE: Trier Center for Digital Humanities (TCDH, Germany)
- ELEXIS-EE: Institute for Estonian Language (EKI, Estonia)
During the grant visits, the hosting institutions will provide support in terms of lexicographical and IT manpower expertise.
Interested researchers/lexicographers should make an application, describing background, purpose, etc., which will be assessed by a committee:
ELEXIS recommends that the applicant contacts the hosting institution about their project before they apply.
The project application should include:
• a project and time plan
• arguments for why a visit to the particular host infrastructure is relevant for their project
• a budget estimate
• Application form
• Terms and Conditions for applying for a visiting grant
• Review procedure of application: The ELEXIS Transnational Access Review Committee will review the applications and notify the applicants within approximately a month of whether the grant has been obtained.
• Principles for reimbursement: Please inquire about reimbursement details at the hosting institution.
After completing a visit to an infrastructure, the grant holder must write a report on the outcome of the visit.
Calls for visiting grants will be launched twice a year during the project period, one call in summer and one in winter each year, amounting to an overall number of seven calls in total.
