Assessment

All applications which satisfy all the formal requirements and which come with all the requested annexes will be presented to a committee which will issue a recommendation on the award of the Grant for International Collaborative Projects with Heritage Institutes.

Final assessment
A Grant for International Collaborative Projects with Heritage Institutes can only be awarded if the advisory committee issues a positive recommendation on the aforementioned interrelated criteria.
Such a positive recommendation may come with a recommendation on the sum to be awarded as a grant and the term for which it will be awarded.

What happens with my application?

The advisory committee assesses the application on the basis of:

  • A project plan explaining why the institution wishes to collaborate with the other party/parties and what the study is all about.
  • A presentation plan explaining in what way the organisation seeks to attract and retain the right audience in an inspiring manner.
  • A budget covering all expenses, including quotations and a statement confirming that the study cannot be funded in any other way.
  • Pledges by the international organisations (and, where applicable, other Dutch organisations) that will take part in the study.

The advisory committee takes the following criteria into consideration:

  • The significance and/or innovative quality of the study, and the quality of the study design. Is the proposed plan convincingly innovative, does it set a convincing example or it is otherwise special? Does the project set itself apart from other cultural heritage objects on display in the Netherlands in terms of content, design and execution? Does the project have a clear profile which complements other cultural heritage projects currently being undertaken in the Netherlands?
  • The significance of the institutions involved. How will the international partnership create added value for the project? How will the collaboration increase the Dutch people’s knowledge of the subject? Is the collaboration between the institutions involved in the partnership likely to result in a successful project which will be of outstanding cultural and historical quality? How does the applicant intend to reach the right audience and strengthen the relationship between the cultural heritage object and the public at large?
  • The quality of the presentation plan, particularly with regard to the (hopefully inspiring) manner in which the institution seeks to attract and retain the right audience. Will the project help get the public more interested in visual arts or cultural heritage? Can the presentation of the study results be expected to bridge the gap between the public and cultural heritage, for instance because it addresses a topical issue? Do the project and its methodology/methodologies cater to the selected target group(s)?

Conditions

  • Grant applications may be submitted by Dutch institutions managing cultural heritage of national significance.
  • In order to be eligible, such a Dutch institution must have entered into a partnership with similar cultural heritage institutions abroad.
  • The proposed research project must be shown off by both the Dutch institution and its international partner/s.
  • The applicant will make a significant financial contribution to the acquisition of the object itself. The grant application is more likely to be successful if the applicant has raised some funds itself by means of a crowd-funding campaign, e.g. through voordekunst.nl.
  • The foreign partner’s or partners’ share of the project costs must be in acceptable proportion to the grant awarded by the Mondriaan Fund.
