YUFE Postdoctoral Programme - Opening Conference “European Identity and Responsibilities in a Global World”
Within the framework of the YUFE Postdoc Programme a joint call for seven three-year postdoc positions was launched in autumn 2020, resulting in selection of the first six YUFE postdocs at six YUFE institutions. The individual funding periods of their research projects on “European Identity” are now starting at the respective contract institutions. For this occasion, a welcome event and opening conference will take place on 18-19 October 2021 at the University of Bremen.
