The Berlin–Bochum Memory Alliance is a transregional collaborative initiative of four DFG-funded consortia. Its goal is to create synergies across consortiums, by providing a platform for members to share ongoing memory research and to network. To this end, the alliance hosts joint events and supports self-organised initiatives of its early-career researchers.
