Knowledge Transfer

Carrying Knowledge about Eastern Europe into the World

The GWZO has been developing transfer forms to bring its research results to the public for many years: curated film series and exciting academic cinema, informative podcast radio on research topics and both large and small exhibitions, shown in museums, galleries and cultural institutions in Germany and the world. And of course books: specialist and non-fiction books, practical manuals, instructive standard works. The Institute also hosts events, conferences, workshops for various audiences as well as educational events, from university teaching to summer and winter schools for young researchers, as well as »science events« for the entire city. This rich variety of forms of knowledge transfer has gained the GWZO renown not just in its local Middle Germany, but far beyond Germany’s borders, especially in our research region.
