Main Aims of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung des ZMO e.V.
The idea of founding an association of friends and supporters of the ZMO emerged on the occasion of the 10th anniversary and the Centre´s excellent evaluation by the Wissenschaftsrat/Council of Scholars in 2006. The main purpose of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung des ZMO e.V. is to actively support its non-material and material concerns. The Society co-operates with representatives of research organisations and political as well as cultural institutions and support ZMO research projects and cultural events. Another major concern is to support the young generation of academic fellows working at the Centre in carrying out their research. The Society will advise and encourage the ZMO in establishing new institutional structures and creating new fields of academic research.
The current managing board consists of five members: Peter Heine (chair), Ulrike Freitag, Udo Steinbach, Katrin Bromber and Bettina Gräf.
