Distinct programmes and training workshops aim at bringing together young researchers from different regions studying Eastern Europe and support professional development for Postdocs within and outside academia.

The EEGA supports one to six months stays of Postdocs at the partner institutions in the science region Leipzig-Halle Jena. Goals of such research residence may serve the preparation of an application for extended funding by a national or international science foundation or the preparation/development/finishing of publications. Joint applications and publications of Postdocs from several research backgrounds are highly appreciated. This also holds for small Postdoc-groups who want to organise international thematic workshops to sound and explore new thematic fields.
Eligible for applications are Postdocs from institutions that are related to the member institutions of EEGA through official cooperation agreements.
