Leibniz Research Alliance

Leibniz institutions form collaborative research alliances that use inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to address current scientific and socially-relevant issues.

The alliances are designed for a period of five to 15 years and are open for collaboration with universities, other non-university research institutions and infrastructure facilities as well as research groups abroad.

The Centre for Contemporary History, Potsdam, is a member of the Leibniz Research Alliance ‘Historical Authenticity’ (Martin Sabrow is spokesman and Achim Saupe coordinator of this research network) and ‘Crises of a Globalised World’ (Frank Bösch is deputy spokesman of this research network).
