The television study grant makes a maximum of €5000 available for small scale research projects at a FIAT/IFTA member archive.

The research project should aim to: 

  • produce historical knowledge of archival material or archiving practices;
  • collect and disseminate historical sources that complement and enhance our understanding of the archived material studied. Examples of complementary historical sources can include: documents from other archives, press material, oral interviews, etc.;
  • enhance our understanding of topics, programmes, events, personalities, production and archiving practices, etc. that are relevant for the history of the archive institution where the study takes place and/or for European television history.
  • valorize and disseminate academic knowledge of archive collections by means of publications and conference presentations.
