Explorative Workshops serve to identify, test and develop new themes, methods, questions and research projects from a transregional perspective. They are small-scale, short-term and intensely focused events that test the sustainability of research ideas and develop new forms of cooperation with scholars across the globe. They are risk-oriented and concentrate on innovative disciplinary and regional cross-cutting. Explorative Workshops are ideal for testing new research questions, fields and projects in an uncomplicated and flexible format.
