EDDA is pleased to announce five grantees in relation to its Fourth Call for proposals in February 2012. The Fourth Call was tied to the development of the Center’s research programme. The purpose was to attract researchers into specific research projects within the three distinct, if interconnected, research areas, encompassing six themes. Applicants were invited to submit proposals with a specific focus on one topic within EDDA‘s three Research Areas.
