Established this year by RnB4Culture, this award recognizes the vibrancy of research in Italian culture and its evolving nature expressed in a variety of ways such as innovative uses of technology, or originality of approach, or contribution to wider questions and trends in the Humanities at large.

  • Finalists will receive the Award Finalist Certificate.

Three Finalists will be selected for each of the Awards. Finalists will present their research at the virtual Young ISSNAF Symposia in November 2021. A jury will select the Winners. These Symposia are open to the public.
