The Center for Interdisciplinary Polish Studies at the European University Viadrina (EUV) has the primary task of consolidating Polish expertise in research and instruction at the three faculties of the EUV. Additionally, the ZIP aims to strengthen research on Poland across Germany. A step in strengthening the visibility of research on Poland is to intensify communication and exchange, which the ZIP fosters in the form of a global internet platform. The Center also networks internationally through conferences, visiting scholars, and institutional cooperation. It connects researchers within Europe and globally, thereby increasing the visibility of German research on Poland.
The Center of Interdisciplinary Polish Studies includes the following disciplines in its mission:
- Cultural History
