Founded in 2016 as a non-profit organization, the Palarq Foundation is a private entity whose main purpose is to support and encourage Spanish archaeology and human palaeontology. This institution finances 48 Spanish projects of this type abroad (except Europe) and another 54 in Spain.
On 10 February 2020, the Foundation opened a call for projects for research teams working in archaeology or human palaeontology outside Europe and belonging to Spanish institutions such as universities, research institutes, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), the Catalan Institute for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) or other similar entities. The deadline is 15 May this year.
NATIONAL PRIZE FOR ARCHAEOLOGY AND PALAEONTOLOGY
The Palarq Foundation also announces the second edition of its National Archaeology and Palaeontology Prize, the first to be awarded from a private initiative, which is biennial in nature and has a budget of 80,000 euros. Its objective is to recognize the excellence and originality of archaeological or paleontological projects, directed by Spanish research teams, at a national or international level and from any culture or historical period. The call opens on 9 March and will run until 29 May.
