German-American Research Networking Program (GARN)

The German-American Academic Council Foundation made funds available for a German-American Research Networking Program (GARN) for individuals who had participated in the Transatlantic Doctoral Seminar on Modern German History in 1996 and 1997. The main purpose of the program was to provide networking opportunities and to foster cooperation on joint research projects between young scholars and scientists from Germany and the United States. Research teams were composed of participants from both countries, and team members carried out research on a project, which was formally presented at a conference.
