EEGA in Kyiv at the German-Ukrainian Forum of Young Researchers

The German-Ukrainian Forum of Young Researchers, organised by Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen and the German-Ukrainian Academic Society in collaboration with a number of the Ukrainian and German scientific and educational institutions, brought together 45 scholars from both countries and provided them with a platform for close communication and exchange. The Forum covered the fields of Exact Sciences, Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities. The third day in Kyiv was dedicated to fellowship and development opportunities for Ukrainian scholars in Germany. Here, Svitlana Potapenko gave a brief talk on the recent interdisciplinary conference “Self-Positioning of Eastern European Societies in Global Relations: Conceptions of Space and Self-Presentations in School Textbooks” (Leipzig, November 7 – 8, 2017) and shared her experience of the cooperation with the Leibniz ScienceCampus “Eastern Europe – Global Area”. She talked about the structure and fields of research of the EEGA as well as pointed out the main fellowship programmes available to the Ukrainian scholars.
