The Leibniz ScienceCampus EEGA is established to work for the years 2016 – 2020. It is committed to developing new research perspectives on Eastern Europe, engaging in knowledge exchange activities on the region with stakeholders, and promoting young researchers. It follows the idea that the multi-disciplinary and multi-faceted examination of processes of globalisation are a key for a better understanding of actual societal developments.
To achieve its main aims, the EEGA concentrates on four main areas of activity:
1. Postdoc Support
2. Communication with the Public and Multiplicators
3. Formation of the Scientific Field
4. Teaching and Young Talents
Accordingly the EEGA’s measures are conceptualised. They are focussing on the key aspects of exchange, expression, school, advise, infrastructure, perspectives, connections, enrichment, innovation, interaction, future, and excellence.
