The ScienceCampus is a joint project by the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) and the University of Regensburg. It is supported by a grant from the Leibniz Association. The ScienceCampus seeks to strengthen collaboration between the Leibniz Institute and the University by creating a visible research cluster and an interdisciplinary platform for scholarly exchange in Area Studies.
The collaborating partners within the University of Regensburg are the Regensburg European-American Forum (REAF), the Research Centre Spain (CEH - Forschungszentrum Spanien), the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies (GS-OSES) and the Center for International and Transnational Area Studies (CITAS). The ScienceCampus cooperates with international partners across multiple European regions and both North and South America.
Europe and America in the Modern World has a global visiting fellowship programme and a doctoral programme for six doctoral scholars. The ScienceCampus will provide training for early career researchers, opportunities for international academic exchanges, and events aimed at both academic audiences and the general public. The ScienceCampus research activities are focused on five Interdisciplinary Research Modules.
The official opening of the ScienceCampus took place on 17 December 2019. A report (in German) and pictures of the event are available here.
