Additional comments: The main aspect of such proposals needs to be in the cross-disciplinary collaboration between the Sciences and the Humanities, where both parties gain scientifically from the research project. Thus the collaboration needs to transcend the established application of a method from one field in another. For instance purely neuroscientific investigations of the mind or art-historic studies applying chemical analysis are not cross-disciplinary in the sense we envision.
