The research should centre on the religious, political, social, and cultural aspects of Europe from the early modern era to 1989/90. The institute encourages research projects that compare different regions and countries, cross national boundaries, and examine the transfer of ideas and practices. Additionally, it welcomes projects that focus on intellectual, theological, and religious history.
The IEG provides an opportunity for fellowship recipients to collaborate and work closely with the institute’s academic staff. Each fellow is paired with a designated staff member who serves as a mentor and advisor throughout their fellowship. To be eligible for funding, research projects must have a minimum duration of six months. Fellowship recipients are required to reside and work on their research at the institute’s building in Mainz, where they have access to the institute’s specialized library and other resources. However, they are also allowed to take short trips for research purposes, such as visiting archives, and libraries and attending conferences. The official languages of the IEG are German and English, and proficiency in both languages is required to participate in discussions and activities at the institute.
