RECS – Research Center Sanssouci

The „Research Center Sanssouci. For Knowledge and Society” (RECS) is a research cooperation of the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg, the University of Potsdam and the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). The research alliance strengthens the coordination, promotion and the networking of research and teaching projects on the history, art history and cultural history of Brandenburg-Prussia on an international level. Starting from the Brandenburg-Prussian intellectual and material heritage, the objective is to raise questions and to develop projects across disciplines, as well as to present and discuss the outcome within the scientific world and the public sphere. The RECS offers a forum to discuss future-related issues of an open and democratic society.
