About the School of Advanced Studies

The IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies was founded in order to explore innovation in East Asia from a multidisciplinary perspective and gain a better understanding of the dynamics and the success or failure of innovation in society. It is funded by a grant from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

The School of Advanced Studies brings together researchers from five different faculties at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE). Advanced School members have expertise in political science, economics, social sciences, engineering and cultural studies. The team itself is highly international. The 19 young scientists working on their PhD and postdoctoral projects at the Advanced School come from six different countries, namely Germany, China, Russia, the Netherlands, Korea and the US.
