DAAD promotes interdisciplinary Ukrainian studies

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is funding the establishment of two centres for interdisciplinary Ukrainian studies at German universities. A network led by the European University Viadrina and the project of the University of Regensburg came out on top in the selection process. Around five million euros in funding from the Federal Foreign Office will be available for both centres until 2028.

Two projects came out on top in the selection of centres for interdisciplinary Ukrainian studies:

  • The “Denkraum Ukraine” centre at the University of Regensburg and
  • The “Kompetenzverbund Interdisziplinäre Ukrainestudien Frankfurt (Oder) – Berlin (KIU)” centre at the European University Viadrina in cooperation with Berlin universities and scientific institutions.

Both projects will receive around 750,000 euros in 2024. A total of almost five million euros will be available until 2028.
