RESILIENCE’s Transnational Access Program Now Available to the Religious Studies Community

RESILIENCE, the European Research Infrastructure for Religious Studies, is proud to offer its first service to the Religious Studies community: the Transnational Access (TNA) Program. Users of this program will gain direct, fast, and effective access to the collections of seven leading research institutions and universities in Europe, guided by experts in the field.

Transnational Access is the first service offered by RESILIENCE to the Religious Studies community. Users of this program will gain direct and effective access, both physical and virtual, to the unique collections and expertise of seven leading research institutions and universities in Europe. In addition, for the user, a TNA stay means faster access to resources, which means more effective use of research time. Each host institution also offers a place to work, help in navigating physical and digital collections, provides locally tailored travel and accommodation tips, as well as additional benefits unique to the institution. Crucially, the TNA user will enjoy expert guidance provided by senior scholars from the host institution, incorporating valuable networking opportunities to the research visit.

TNA Hosts

Current TNA hosts are RESILIENCE’s coordinator FSCIRE (IT), KU Leuven (BE), the Theological University of Apeldoorn (NL), the University of Sarajevo (BIH), Volos Academy for Theological Studies (GR), University of Münster (DE), and Sofiiski Universitet Sveti Kliment Ohridski (BG). In the future, other institutions may also become a TNA host.

Call for Applications

The current call for applications is open from May 16 to July 1, 2022. Scholars at all career levels can apply for a short research visit to the host of their choice and on the conditions of that host during the academic year 2022-2023.
