Linking research with teaching and with training new generations of researchers

The Research Centre is also committed to fostering new generations of researchers, especially in the context of an open European educational area. Therefore, the Research Centre endeavours to:

  • wherever possible link research projects with students’ work, e.g., by offering project-related courses and project-related qualification opportunities for research assistants and in the framework of master’s theses and doctoral dissertations;
  • specifically promote up-and-coming researchers by offering positions that are subsidised by third parties and that provide hands-on experience under the supervision of experienced researchers;
  • develop a European M.A. in European Youth Studies, which utilizes innovative methods of postgraduate teaching and learning in an international context.
