The COVID-19 pandemic has made research more challenging, less acces­sible and has generally put a financial burden on many resear­chers. With less means, time and possi­bi­lities to engage in extensive research projects, financing research is proving difficult. The aim of the workshop is to bring together on the one hand experts who are working in/on Central Asia, the Southern Caucasus and Eastern Europe in the time of the global pandemic and on the other hand repre­sen­ta­tives of funding insti­tu­tions to discuss and elaborate project ideas as well as to explore the possi­bi­lities of funding for these or other research projects.

The event is the second workshop within the “Eurasia Lab & Fellowship Program” which is imple­mented with the support of the Open Society Founda­tions (OSF). It will take place via the platform “Zoom”. For a  networking session we will switch to the platform “Wonder” which allows for more inter­active engagement. The event will be held in English.


Due to the huge interest in the workshop, regis­tra­tions are unfor­tu­n­ately no longer possible.
