The archive and various projects of the STARS collective are made possible by the financial support, scientific collaboration and logistical backing of the following institutions:
Endangered Archives Programme (EAP)
The Programme’s aim is to contribute to the preservation of archival material that is in danger of destruction, neglect or physical deterioration world-wide. This is achieved principally through the award of grants in an annual competition. The grants provide funding to enable successful applicants to locate relevant endangered archival collections, to arrange their transfer to a suitable local archival home where possible, to create digital copies of the material and to deposit the copies with local institutions and the British Library.
Fondation des Sciences du Parimoine (FSP)
PATRIMA unites the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences in la Fondation des Sciences du Patrimoine. The purpose of the Foundation is to honour and promote cultural heritage through the development of international research and education programs.
Institut Francais de Pondichery (IFP)
A tool of the French scientific diplomacy, the Institute is reinforcing the Indo-French partnership by its research and training missions. Through its research projects in South Asia, it contributes to making vibrant the cultural and natural heritage of India.
Centre d’Etudes de l’Inde et de l’Asie du Sud (CEIAS)
The CEIAS (Centre d’Études de l’Inde et de l’Asie du Sud—Center for South Asian Studies) is the largest French research institute in social sciences dealing with the Indian subcontinent. The Center is a joint research unit, combining scholars from the EHESS (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales—School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences) and the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique—French National Center for Scientific Research).
