The EAJS has organised eleven large international congresses since it was founded in 1981 (link for brief history). These are now held every four years (though due to COVID-19, the twelfth EAJS congress has been scheduled for July 2023). Between these large international congresses, the EAJS has supported (and continues to support) conferences, workshops, summer/winter schools and other colloquia in various venues across Europe under the auspices of two separate programmes, the EAJS Programme in European Jewish Studies (which ran from 2015 to 2018) and the EAJS Conference Grant Programme in European Jewish Studies (which started in 2015 and is ongoing), on a range of Jewish Studies subjects.
The ongoing EAJS Conference Grant Programme in European Jewish Studies seeks to foster cooperation among scholars involved in academic Jewish Studies across Europe and to support early career researchers in the field of academic Jewish Studies to develop professional networks. Core criteria are academic excellence, international cooperation, and a positive impact on Jewish Studies in Europe, specifically on academic institutions and programmes in European regions with a less developed academic infrastructure in Jewish Studies.
Calls for Submissions are usually issued in January/February for the EAJS Conference Grant Programme in European Jewish Studies.
