Eastern Europe - Global Area

Leibniz-ScienceCampus Leipzig – Halle – Jena

The Leibniz ScienceCampus Eastern Europe - Global Area (EEGA) is committed to developing new research perspectives on Eastern Europe, engaging in knowledge exchange activities on the region with stakeholders, and promoting young researchers.

Together with partners from Eastern Europe, the EEGA LeibnizCampus will examine the global linkages of Eastern Europe generated by migration, economic ties, cultural exchanges and political integration processes. The researchers cooperating in the campus ask how societies in Eastern Europe are positioning themselves in global processes and conflicts. It is intended to disseminate the research findings not only within the academic community but also to the media and the wider public. Furthermore, the Campus combines the training of young researchers with international and interdisciplinary degree courses.
The Leibniz ScienceCampus brings together knowledge and expertise from researchers affiliated with both universities and research institutes in the Leipzig-Jena-Halle science region. It is committed to stimulating an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary discourse with and on a diverse and changing region.
