Innovative research projects are especially welcome. The Host Institution is open to variety of research methods, including theory, analyses of original sources, and analyses of large secondary data sets.

Grantees will be part of the fellowship program at the PIASt, dedicated to outstanding researchers from all regions of the world who want to pursue self-directed work in fine research conditions. They will form a small but stimulating community which will benefit from its multi-disciplinary composition, that enables free exchange of ideas and opinions in a spirit of cross-disciplinary dialogue.
