The Historical Archives of the European Union (HAEU) is pleased to announce the recent selection of three researchers for the International Visegrad Fund Research Grant Programme.
The Programme, established in 2021 through an agreement between the International Visegrad Fund and the European University Institute, supports young scholars from Central and Eastern Europe working on research projects that necessitate the consultation of sources held at the HAEU.

His book project addresses ‘The Slovak Contribution to Central-Eastern European Federalist Projects of the 20th Century: A Pathway of European Integration?’
