Your Excellency, On behalf of Leibniz ScienceCampus "Eastern Europe - Global Area" (EEGA) I apply to you with some brief information about the Leibniz ScienceCampus EEGA, its orientation, and scholarship grants.
The ScienceCampus EEGA, established in 2016 under the direction of the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography (IfL), develops new research perspectives on Eastern Europe in its global relations. The special feature of the campus lies in the interregional cooperation of various universities and research institutions. The objectives of EEGA are to break up regional container thinking and the often one-sided information on Eastern Europe in order to offer a multi-perspective access to this world region. With the support of postdocs and the integration of a master's programme, as well as exchange with journalists, EEGA wants to convey this paradigm not only to a new generation of international researchers, but also to a German media landscape (see also www.leibniz-eega.de).
