Villa Vigoni - German-Italian Centre for European Excellence

Villa Vigoni is a binational association funded by the Federal Republic of Germany and the Italian Republic. One of its tasks is to deepen scientific cooperation between the two countries. Emphasis is placed on German-Italian dialogue.

The programme developed within the framework of these agreements includes regular announcements for events in various formats, designed to promote exchange and networking between researchers in the humanities and social sciences.

More information about the programme and calls is available on the official website:

Villa Vigoni Discussions

Villa Vigoni Discussions are devoted to topics that deepen current debates on European culture, history and society. Issues are discussed in depth in a format which differs from standard conference formats. The number of participants is therefore limited to 20.

Proposals can be submitted until 15 December 2018.

Trilateral Research Conferences „Villa Vigoni“

To promote long-term dialogue and networking between researchers in the humanities and social sciences in Germany, France and Italy while expressly supporting the use of German, French and Italian as languages of scholarship, the DFG, the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l'Homme (FMSH) and Villa Vigoni have developed the Trilateral Research Conferences programme, in which multilingualism is a key principle. Each trilateral research conference consists of a series of three events, which are held on a yearly basis where possible.

Proposals can be submitted to Villa Vigoni until 30 April 2017.
