The Centre for Southeast European Studies of the University of Graz is an interdisciplinary forum for teaching and research on Southeastern Europe. In addition to a comprehensive teaching program and research projects, the centre also regularly organizes events for an academic and a general audience on Southeastern Europe.
The Centre for Southeast European Studies (CSEES) will implement a project titled "Current Practices of Science Communication in Western Balkan Countries and their Impacts" supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation project PERFORM. Science communication is a key element of any research system. Good science communication is of benefit to the individual researcher, for the community of researchers, their institutions, policy and decision makers, and the wider public.
