Currently, the Europa-Institut welcomes the three scholarship holders Valerija Dabetić, Olivera Sevo and Bojana Todorović from the University of Belgrade to the Europa-Institut, who have each received a scholarship funded by the DAAD Leonhard Euler Programme due to their excellent academic achievements. Valerija, was already at the Institute in autumn 2020 for two months of research and is now completing her stay with another one-month research stay. Olivera and Bojana regularly started their research stays in June 2021. We are pleased to finally welcome the three researchers back to the Institute after the challenging last months. They are also the vanguard for several other research stays of young academics that we hope to be able to conduct in the course of the year.
Research Stays 2021/2022
Furthermore, the Europa-Institut was also able to award three scholarships, financed by the DAAD's Leonhard Euler Programme, to three scholarship holders from the law faculties in Belgrade and Skopje for the coming funding period 2021 to 2022 on the basis of their outstanding research project and experience.
Leonhard Euler Programme
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) supports the Leonhard Euler Scholarship Programme with funds from the Federal Foreign Office (AA). The programme promotes the implementation of joint binational research projects in order to contribute to the retention of young university teachers (e.g. during the doctoral phase) at their respective home universities in Eastern and South Eastern Europe as well as countries of the South Caucasus and Central Asia.
The Leonhard Euler Programme focuses on on-site scholarship support ("SurPlace") in conjunction with an (additional) one to three-month study visit to the German partner university. In addition to qualifying young academics, this programme aims to increasingly promote young academics for cooperation between different chairs at the participating universities. Furthermore, the programme is intended to help counteract the "brain drain" of qualified young researchers.
