Outgoing U-M scholars will receive up to 4,500 EUR for a one-month research stay in Regensburg, as well as working space, access to the university’s research resources, and the opportunity to contribute to the ScienceCampus’ open access blog. The fellowship program is aimed at WCEE-affiliated tenure-track faculty, although advanced doctoral students may also be considered.

The University of Regensburg and the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies are partnering to create a Leibniz ScienceCampus. The ScienceCampus will offer grants for doctoral researchers, training for early career researchers, opportunities for international academic exchanges, and events aimed at both academic audiences and the general public.

Entitled “Europe and America in the Modern World: Transformation and Frictions of Globality, Past and Present,” the new initiative aims to explore interactions and entanglements in the transatlantic world in cooperation with international partners.
