The Institute of East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) is one of the largest and longest-established research institutions of its kind in Germany. It has been built on a history of more than 90 years of research on Eastern and Southeast Europe by its predecessor institutes (Osteuropa-Institut and Südost-Institut). Its primary goal is to conduct innovative research on an international scale and to develop and provide infrastructure services that benefit the research community, as well as to inform the public about the region.

Thanks to its international visibility and regional expertise, the IOS makes a significant contribution to the Regensburg Eastern and Southeast Europe area studies cluster and aims to strengthen it in cooperation with the University of Regensburg. As a member of the Leibniz Association (since 2017), the Institute benefits from the manifold opportunities offered by this unique association of more than 90 scientific institutions and contributes to its ongoing development.
