* Research activities and aims

Main objectives: To introduce young israeli students to german history, culture and ideas; promote research in this field; to exchange students and researchers; to organize workshops and symposiums; to publish a yearbook in german history and a book-series which presents israeli research in german history. To promote cooperation with german and non-german universities. During the last years, the institute opened up its activities in the field of central european history and german culture. The german-jewish encounter in the 19th and 20th century is a strategic topic. The Wiener Library - although not part of the institute - cooperates very closely with the former.
