Leibniz ScienceCampus "Eastern Europe – Global Area" (EEGA)

The EEGA Science Campus was established in 2016 under the leadership of the IfL. It combines the expertise of universities and non-university institutions in Central Germany. The aim of the Campus is to break down regionally compartmentalised approaches and to promote an informed understanding of this world region in its diverse traditions and positions, developments and dynamics. EEGA is committed to disseminate this paradigm not only amongst a new generation of international researchers, but also within the German media and wider public discourse. It does so by supporting postdocs, contributing to PhD-training, developing an emphasis in a Master’s degree course on Eastern Europe in a global perspective and seeking targeted dialogue with journalists.
