SOEP RegioHub successful in “Leibniz ScienceCampus” competition

News of March 27, 2024

The Leibniz Association has announced the funding of seven ScienceCampuses. The existing campus “SOEP RegioHub” (“Regional Development Dynamics and their Social, Economic and Political Consequences”) – a cooperation between SOEP and Bielefeld University in Bielefeld – will be funded for a further four years.

Leibniz ScienceCampuses serve the strategic networking of Leibniz institutes with universities and other cooperation partners. In the case of the SOEP RegioHub campus, researchers from both institutions are investigating the question of what consequences regional disparities have for social cohesion. How do structural, demographic, and economic disparities influence people’s political attitudes and behavior? In addition, the role of local media in shaping public opinion will be analyzed in the second funding phase.

The spokesperson for the Leibniz ScienceCampus SOEP RegioHub is Dr. Jan Goebel, Head of Data Operation and Research Data Centre.
