Former CEMES Research Groups 

In order to ensure a multifaceted and active network, CEMES  initiated the formation and consolidation of eight research groups. These groups were all open to participants, including both CEMES researchers and external researchers. The purpose of the research groups was defined by the individual group, but a number of approaches could be suggested. These included; a continuously running research forum for the presentation of research, initiating seminars and conferences, develop national and international networks and the initiation of proper research projects, which may result in external funding applications nationally and internationally. The basic activities of the research groups were funded by CEMES. The former eight current research groups are presented below as examples. (These headline introductions link to more thorough descriptions of the groups, information on how to join them and meeting announcements)

1. Europe from an Identity and Cultural-History Perspective (EIP) (principal project managers: Gert Sørensen, Karl Christian Lammers and Lars K. Bruun)

2. European Contemporary History: Integration, Ideology and Politics (ECH) (principal project managers: Niklas Olsen, Brigitte Leucht and Sigfrido Ramírez Pérez)

3. Scandinavian Cultural and Aesthetic Modernity (SCAM) (Principal project manager: Jan Rosiek)

4. European Policies and Quality of Life (EPOQ) (Principal project managers: Thomas Højrup and Klaus Schriewer)
5. European Cultural Life During the Cold War (CWCult) (Principal project manager: Michael Fjedsøe)
6. Transatlantic Contemporary History (TCH) (Principal project manager: Poul Villaume)
7. European Enlightenment (EE) (Principal manager: Carsten Meiner) _____________________________________________________________________
8. CEMES-Young Scholars (CYS) 
This group is only open to PhD-Scholars and post.doc. candidates. ____________________________________________________________________

It is important to underline that not only is the initiation of new research groups possible it is also highly desirable. The Steering Committee therefore encourages everyone with a creative idea or an interesting theme to take an independent initiative and create a group. When new groups are formed, they can apply for funding from the CEMES pool. It is the hope of the Steering Committee that CEMES, via the research groups, will experience a vivid and creative debate about European research in the years to come.
