Research Meetings

Support for research meetings

UPTAKE provides financial and practical support to organizing various research meetings (thematic workshops, exploratory meetings, launch of a new research project, meetings convening contributors to book project or journal special issue, etc) in the field of Russian and East European studies. These meetings can be held on the premises of consortium institution or elsewhere (e.g. in conjunction with a major international conference). The consortium actively supports collaborative efforts by consortium partners to secure additional external research funding and to become better integrated in relevant regional, European and international research networks.

Consortium scholars interested in organizing research meetings are encouraged to contact Prof Stefan Hedlund at, leader of work package 3 (Collaborative projects and workshops).
