Contributions for visits by researchers, teachers, experts, cultural personalities and operators

The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation is offering grants aimed at encouraging foreign and Italian researchers, teachers, experts, cultural personalities and operators to carry out missions in Italy and abroad.

Foreign researchers, professors, experts, personalities and cultural operators invited to spend a period of time at Italian university or cultural institutions for study or research reasons may apply for a grant with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Such grand will partially cover the living expenses and will be paid as a lump sum. Depending on the availability of funds, the Ministry may decide to grant contributions for a number of days inferior to those requested in the application.

The Ministry will prioritise grant applications received from foreign researchers, teachers, experts, cultural personalities and operators.

Italian researchers, professors, experts, personalities and cultural operators residing in Italy invited to spend a period of stay at foreign university or cultural institutions for study or research reasons may request from the Ministry a financial contribution consisting of partial coverage (amounting to 80% of the budgeted costs) of travel expenses, paid once the mission has been completed. It should be noted that the trip for which the reimbursement is requested CANNOT include several countries and that the invitation abroad cannot depend on the granting of the contribution.

Applications must be submitted by both Italian and foreign interested parties to the Italian Cultural Institute competent for the area. In countries where there are no Italian Cultural Institutes, the applications must be lodged with the diplomatic-consular mission competent for the territory.

The Ministry will take in consideration only grant applications received from researchers, teachers, experts, personalities and cultural operators, both Italian and foreign, who have been officially invited by a university or cultural institution, preferably within the framework of current Agreements and Programs of bilateral Cultural Cooperation. In the case of Italian applicants, the invitation must come from a foreign university or cultural institution; in the case of foreign applicants, the invitation must come from an Italian university or cultural institution.

The deadline for sending the applications to Italian Cultural Institutes or Diplomatic Missions is the 31st of October 2022.
