Sonja Grimm is Member of the Scientific Advisory Board of HE project InvigoratEU


Prof. Dr. Sonja Grimm has been named Member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the collaborative research project “InvigoratEU: Invigorating Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy for a Resilient Europe”.

The Horizon Europe funded research project (2024-2027) investigates how to reform the EU’s enlargement strategy in a new geopolitical phase, how to respond to other actors’ geopolitical ambitions in the Eastern Neighbourhood and Western Balkans, and how to rebuild the EU’s foreign policy arsenal in view of a new era of military threats. It combines modernisation and geopolitical logics of EU enlargement, leading to new data – e.g. a public opinion survey in Ukraine, a set of scenarios, an external influence index (Russia, China, Turkey), and a social policy compliance and cohesion scoreboard. The consortium includes 18 partners from 16 EU and Non-EU countries and involves civil society engagement in the frame of a civil society network originally build by InvigoratEU.
