Recently established, IN2PAST is the first Associate Laboratory in the field of Humanities and encompasses seven research centres, located in four Portuguese cities. It is dedicated to the preservation, study and promotion of cultural heritage, generating intensive collaborative relations between: 1) academic, laboratory-based, theoretical, and empirical research; 2) public policies concerning the domains of cultural heritage, arts, and civic memory; 3) an important set of Portuguese cultural institutions and facilities, namely monuments, museums, archives, archaeological sites, and natural parks.

The study and promotion of cultural heritage finds in IN2PAST a perfect institutional environment, encouraging the establishment of connections between tangible and intangible (including digital) cultural heritage. Bringing together scientific areas often set apart by academic tradition, IN2PAST extends its operations from laboratorial innovation in the field of heritage sciences to the design of public policies of collective memory, favouring the emergence of an integrated vision with the related partners and stakeholders.

Prospective applicants should present their research plan bearing in mind IN2PAST’s Thematic Lines of research, as well as the conditions set forth in the Scientific Employment Incentive programme. Applicants with a relevant track record of securing funding for their research activities are especially welcomed.
