Collaboration with the Academy of Science and Literature, Mainz

German Historical Institute London signed Agreement on Collaboration with the Academy of Science and Literature, Mainz

The Academy of Science and Literature, Mainz and the German Historical Institute London have entered into a collaborative agreement signed by the President of the Academy, Prof Reiner Anderl, and the Director of the GHIL, Prof Andreas Gestrich. This agreement will strategically extend and give permanency to the collaboration that already exists by conceiving and applying for new projects (also with other research establishments such as the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the Hochschule Mainz), and by further developing existing projects such as programmes run by the DFG, the Federal Ministry for Education and Research or by EU funding partners.

Based on the “Strategic paper for the further development of the Academies’ Programme 2016-2020” agreed between the Union of German Academies of Sciences and Humanities and the Joint Science Conference of the federal and state governments , the Mainz academy and the London institute will set up a joint scholarship programme so that outstanding young scholars can pursue projects in the immediate context of the long-term projects of the Academy set within the framework of the Academies’ Programme ( A direct exchange of ideas will be facilitated by visits to the partner institution (for instance in the sphere of the digital humanities or academic management).
