The European Commission’s FP7 PEOPLE PROGRAMME
FORGING IDENTITIES: The Mobility
These and other questions will be researched by building on European networking and by using a cross-disciplinary methodology combining archaeology, natural science and sociology. This shared platform shall create knowledge of the mobility of people and culture – including the new metal bronze – and insight into the forging of European and regional identities that shaped this remarkable period.
Detailed project description (95 kb)
Backed up by an overall economic framework of almost 3 million € over four years Forging Identities is expected to change current archaeological perspectives from national traditionalism towards transnational and cross-disciplinary engagements.
It consists of 7 network partners and 11 associated partners from universities, museums and specific research institutions across Europe. The network partners have considerable capacities in research training and will provide supervision and facilities for 10 ESRs (PhD stipends) and 4 ERs (postdoc stipends) to be employed soonest possible.
Description of training (84 kb)
Network partners will cooperate with each other in organising workshops, training courses, and summer schools.
Associated partners will provide extra supervision, field sites, data, and secondments offering specific training facilities in archaeology and front-line sciences. Field schools will take place each summer.
