Abstract:
The main aim of the project is to establish and strengthen long-term new research partnerships between European Research Area (ERA) institutions and respected research institutions in USA that are specifically working on European studies. The proposal aims to create a network platform that involves partners working in EU Studies, foster transfer and exchange of knowledge with a special focus on Euro-Transatlantic comparative perspective. Thus, the project aims not only to create research partnerships but also equip participating researchers with an unprecedented comparative perspective on EU affairs since it will combine outlooks from a founding EU-member state, Germany, a candidate country, Turkey and beyond the Atlantic, the USA.

The project offers mobility of 14 researchers from ERA to USA and 12 researchers from USA to ERA in 3 years time. It offers mobility of 26 researchers in total and the total period of secondments are 88 months designed in groups of 1, 3 and 6 months.
