Die Europa-Gastprofessur an der Universität des Saarlandes

The "European Visiting Professorship" has existed at Saarland University since 2008. Since 2016, the format has been coordinated in a new form by the CEUS. The visiting professorship takes into account the European self-image of the university and stands for openness and international exchange, but also for the commitment to the research subject of Europe, which is anchored in the humanities and social sciences of our university.

The European Visiting Professorship brings renowned European researchers to Saarbrücken once a year at the invitation of the CEUS. The academics are to contribute their expertise to teaching as well as to concrete research initiatives of the European focus and to sustainably network Saarland University with its international specialist circles. The students thus have the opportunity to study with a renowned guest for one semester and to become acquainted with new topics and fields of research on Europe as a research subject. At the same time, the guest professorship has an impact on the public sphere with lectures and discussion events.
