The Research Unit "Horizontal Europeanization", which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), examines processes of European Integration that occur in the interaction between administrations, organizations and people. We work in seven very different empirical fields and together generate more general knowledge about the scale and scope of Horizontal Europeanization. Our team is composed of eleven researchers based in Germany and Austria. Furthermore there are 16 PhD students involved in our work. The project is coordinated by Professor Martin Heidenreich of the Jean Monnet Centre for Europeanisation and Transnational Regulations Oldenburg.
