The University of Excellence of Hamburg, the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg, the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy at the University of Hamburg (IFSH), and the German-Italian Centre for the European Dialogue Villa Vigoni together are promoting a new project: the Hamburg-Vigoni Forum.
It is a cross-disciplinary project on the border between science and politics and takes into consideration three thematic focuses representing both classical challenges in the scientific domain and the current challenges of European and global politics: identity, sovereignty, and space.
The project lasts three years and involves specialised meetings of young Italian and German scientists at Villa Vigoni. There will be events in Hamburg to present and discuss the results obtained during the specialised meetings; these manifestations will be opened to the public and relevant political personalities will participate.
It is expected to publish the results concerning the above-mentioned thematical focuses.
