Call KNAW Statesman Thorbecke Fund

The aim of the Statesman Thorbecke Fund is to promote knowledge about the life, work and intellectual legacy of Johan Rudolf Thorbecke (1798-1872), statesman and founder of Dutch parliamentary democracy. Proposals can be submitted by professors, KNAW members or members and alumni of the KNAW Young Academy. The project period should be between one and four years, in which a post doc is appointed. Deadline for submitting proposals is 1 December 2019.

Project proposals will focus on disciplines in which J.R. Thorbecke distinguished himself as a politician and scholar, e.g. in promoting humanities, social sciences and natural sciences in relation to issues of human society. As an applicant, you can, for example, use elements of Thorbecke’s life, work and intellectual legacy to reflect on contemporary societal issues such as those raised by the Dutch National Research Agenda. Preference will be given to integrative projects, such as those at the interface of different scientific studies or projects combining politics and the law, society and science, or different national perspectives.
