Hier sind häufig gestellte Fragen zum Bewerbungsverfahren und zur Projektdurchführung gelistet. Um die Gleichbehandlung aller Bewerber*innen zu gewährleisten, können wir keine individuellen Antworten auf Fragen per E-Mail oder Telefon geben. Alle eingehenden Fragen werden daher in diesem FAQ-Bereich öffentlich beantwortet und allen Interessierten zugänglich gemacht. Der FAQ-Bereich ist aktuell nur auf Englisch verfügbar.

Wir werden alle Bewerber*innen per E-Mail informieren, sobald wir neue Antworten bereitstellen. Um auf dem Laufenden zu bleiben, empfehlen wir E-Mails (einschließlich Spam-Ordner) regelmäßig zu überprüfen und diesen FAQ-Bereich gelegentlich zu besuchen.

Auf unserer Fellowship-Seite sind außerdem weitere Informationen zur Vergütung der Fellows ergänzt.

Applicants to last year‘s CIRCE Programmes are still eligible to apply for the Fellowship Programme in 2024. However, it is important to note that this year’s Fellowship Programme focuses more specifically on creative and entrepreneurial practice rather then research and scientific methods.

All information regarding the format and lengths of the concept will be available in the tender documents. These will be available on the e-tending platform dtvp after opening on April 16th, 2024.

There is no age limitation for the 2024 Fellowship Programme.

We will be primarily evaluating the quality of the applications. If you fulfill the requirements (see our Fellowship Guidelines), you are welcome to submit your application.

Applicants who are currently employed by or have an affiliation with a scientific, cultural, or social institution or organisation, where the pilot project can be initiated, are encouraged to apply. However, meeting this criterion is not a mandatory condition for a successful application. There is no particular criteria to meet during the submission of the bid in the tender procedure. Applicants will be allowed to submit letters of recommendations as an optional part of their application. Please note, that such letters will not be relevant for the evaluation of the bid and will solely provide more context about the planned collaboration. We also want to point out that we are currently looking for interested mentors.

The pre-registration phase (expression of interest) takes place from March 19th to April 16th, 2024 at 1:00 pm CET. During this phase, if you wish to be invited to the tender procedure, you are only required to pre-register using the form. After the end of the pre-registration phase, you will receive an email with a link for DTVP signaling the opening of the tender procedure on the portal. The e-tending portal will open from April 16th to May 13th, 2024, 1:00 p.m. If you do not receive an email on the 16th of April, please check your spam folder.

Residents of one of the 46 countries of the Council of Europe or Kosovo can apply for the Fellowship Programme 2024. The impact of the projects carried out by the Fellows does not have to apply to this geographical region.

The Fellowship Programme 2024 is conceived to support individuals and is not aimed at groups. Therefore, the application should be submitted individually and will be evaluated individually. We do not formally exclude applications from multiple individuals involved in the same project. Should you envision collaborating with another applicant, you are welcome to specify that in your concept.

The registration form will give you access to the tender procedure for the Fellowship Programme. With the Fellowship Programme 2024, CIRCE is looking for 10 Fellows who plan on implementing pilot projects bringing creative impact into practice, which differs from last year‘s Fellowship Programme. There is currently no continuation of the Creative Impact Fund.

Individuals residing in one of the 46 countries of the Council of Europe or Kosovo can apply for the Fellowship Programme 2024. Therefore, interested persons from the UK are welcome to apply. If you fulfill the requirements (see our Fellowship Guidelines), you are welcome to submit your application.
