Imparting knowledge at the IOS
The IOS has a number of tasks beyond the provision of research and services for the scientific community. The Institute also communicates its knowledge on Eastern and Southeast Europe in a variety of ways to very different groups—from researchers and politicians with specialist expertise to the media and the general public.
The Institute organizes a range of events for laypeople or academics. Staff members at the IOS also teach at universities and are regular points of contact for national and international media. The IOS also actively contributes to knowledge transfer with its own contributions, for example in its blogs or in social media.
