A two months stay in Copenhagen

Katharina Heinz went ad fontes in its most literal sense: to the medieval manuscript she is researching. She travelled to Copenhagen for a two month lond research stay. "The mobility grant gave me the opportunity to focus on my research work in a motivating environment and to develop both my academic skills and network for possible collaboration in the future", she says.

Ellen Aa. Reinertsen present her project in an early stage and got valuable input on methodological choises. "Scholars from different university contexts have been “thinking with me” about my project, pointing out what is unclear and how their research traditions would relate to my methodological choices," she explains.
