With a wide range of events, and types of events, the IOS advances the specialist discourse on East and Southeast Europe internationally while also imparting this newly acquired knowledge to the interested public. Whereas the IOS Annual Conference, workshops, conferences, summer academies and colloquia mainly target the international academic community, the Regensburg Lectures on East Europe are a type of events that is also, if not primarily, aimed at the general public.
Events are an important instrument for the initiation, shaping and extension of cooperative ventures as well as for the advancement of the IOS's interdisciplinary research profile.
Likewise, events are a good opportunity to get acquainted with the IOS and its focus areas. You can keep yourself informed about current events through the Institute's website, newsletter or Facebook page.
The fact that teaching is also part of the IOS's range of activities illustrates especially the close relationship the Institute has with the University of Regensburg. The early contact that students can get with the IOS in this way is an important link to the IOS's focus on the promotion of young scholars.
