Being an inter-disciplinary centre on spatial social research, the IRS is outstandingly networked at the regional, national and international level. Scientists from the IRS maintain relations inside the Leibniz Association, with universities and research institutions as well as within their respective scientific communities. The IRS maintains institutional partnerships with the University of Manchester (Department of Geography at the School of Environment, Education and Development), the University of Leicester (Centre of Urban History – School of Historical Studies), the Adam-Mickiewicz University of Poznán, University of Turku and the University of Eastern Finland. Furthermore, the IRS cooperates with a number of other partner institutions in the form of project consortiums funded by the EU framework programme of research and innovation (Horizon 2020) and other bi- or multi-national as well as German programmes. Here you will find an overview of currently running projects and our project partners.
