Current Projects

Part of The Centre’s research mandate is to stimulate research on Germany and Europe, especially in the areas where Canadian and European interests intersect. To encourage the development of collaborative, interdisciplinary research projects, The Centre set up funding for Faculty-Graduate Student Research and Study Groups. Funding is made available through an annual competition at each Centre site (see Grants), with priority given to groups involving faculty from at least two disciplines. The short-term objective of these groups is to integrate the study and research activities of faculty and students in the activities of The Centre as well as to assure the coherence of The Centre’s lecture series, conferences and other intellectual activities. The long-term objectives of these groups is to generate research projects and obtain major Canadian research grants.
