In March 2021, preliminary virtual meeting between the research-active staff at SSEES and Slavic-Eurasian Research Center (SRC) took place, where they shared information about current research projects and interests. Participants articulated trajectories of future collaboration and the partnership between SSEES and SRC, Japan’s national center for Slavic and Eurasian Studies at Hokkaido University, was created.
