Senior Research Fellowships

In 2013, the IEG established the Senior Research Fellowship Programme for established researchers. It enables the directors to invite respected academics from other European countries and outside Europe to Mainz to pursue their own research and to exchange ideas with the academics working at the IEG. The programme facilitates and strengthens existing cooperation, and potentially lays the groundwork for new shared research projects. Senior research fellows usually come to Mainz for between two and six months, during which they can organize an expert workshop on a topic of their choice, which fits into the research programme of the Institute.
 

Senior Research Fellows who have stayed at the Institute since 2013:
