EEGA invites for proposals for thematic workshops and conferences, including thematic writing retreats and discussion fora. All Postdocs from EEGA member institutions and their cooperation partners are eligible to submit proposals. Workshops can take place in Germany or in Eastern Europe in a wider sense. The events may vary in group sizes, though should not have less than 5 participants or more than 25. Generally, a workshop, conference or writing retreat should not exceed 3 days.
