Videos have become a new tool available to the CIERA community of researchers. Hosted on the CIERA YouTube channel, they allow research work, themes and publications, etc. to be promoted in another way and to a different public.
In collaboration with the publishers of member institutions and other partners, notably the Septentrion University Press, CIERA contributes to the publication of books drawn from the various scientific events it supports, including: study days, training-research programmes, and junior conferences.
Dialogiques is a collection created by CIERA and included in the collection “Bibliothèque allemande” of the éditions Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme. It hosts monographs and collective works on German and Franco-German lands, within an open horizon to Europe and the world beyond Europe.
The collection aims to focus on comparative approaches, while showing, through the analysis of transfers and cross-cutting studies, the logic of interdependence that shapes national groupings in Europe.
By considering both the historical dimension of its objects and their insertion into current affairs, Dialogiques aims to be a laboratory of the diversity of areas and approaches. It seeks to stimulate thinking on the contributions of the humanities and social sciences to the understanding of the world of today.
The collection also hosts books drawn from PhDs awarded with the Michael Werner prize
CIERA proposes a set of activities to help you to enhance your research work within the scientific community, as well as with students and the general public. The Centre contributes to the publication of reviews, articles and books. It also participates in the dissemination of scientific knowledge to the general public on social networks and through its series of videos.

The CIERA is the result of the synergy of the organisations that make up it. These are12 of the most prestigious French institutions in higher education and research, distributed across the Ile-de-France, the Rhone-Alpes Auvergne and the Grand-Est regions:
Thanks to the CIERA network, these member institutions pool their resources to strengthen their training and research potential concerning Germany. This cooperation strategy also enables them to build new partnerships. The creation of a GermanoPole within the Grand Est region and the “Schwerpunkt Deutschland” seminar piloted by from the Rhone-Alpes cluster are two very good examples.
These institutions also benefit from privileged access to certain funding offers, such as training-research programmes.
CIERA is integrated into DAAD’s network of German and European studies centres around the world. This function gives it a privileged place to internationalise its partnerships.
Researchers registered with CIERA have special access to the programmes proposed by the DAAD centres and have access to major opportunities to enhance their work internationally.
