CLARIN Mobility Grants


CLARIN mobility grants help researchers and developers to fund short visits (typical duration: one week) between representatives of CLARIN sites to collaborate on building and using the CLARIN infrastructure.

The mobility grants are designed to promote:

  • sharing of expertise between CLARIN centres and countries;
  • integration of resources, tools, services and centres in European countries not currently in the CLARIN ERIC;
  • collaboration between CLARIN developers and researchers in the humanities and social sciences.

The eligibility criteria have been kept simple. Applicants of a mobility grant just have to fulfill both of these criteria:

  • they are based in a CLARIN ERIC country (see overview of participating consortia), or they are affiliated to a CLARIN site, and
  • the collaboration is clearly focussed on the use or development of the CLARIN infrastructure

Although funding can only go to researchers based in a CLARIN ERIC country, the hosting centre does not necessarily have to be in a CLARIN ERIC country. Either the home institution of the applicant or the centre hosting the visit must have a strong ongoing connection with CLARIN.
