PECOB is a connecting space built between Italy and Eastern, Central Europe, the Balkans and the Post-Soviet space. The Portal aims to provide both expert and generic users with scientific contents such as Politics, Economics, Society, Culture, History, and the Media coming from or focusing on the involved countries.
The project of the Portal is implemented with the collaboration of the Italian Association of Slavists (AIS) and the "Europe and the Balkans" International Network. It permits to collect up-to-date information, to produce new scientific contents, and to strengthen international collaboration among research groups, scholars, PhD and Master's students on specific issues.
The Portal offers a friendly and intuitive interface, a database of relevant sources, a fast and advanced search opportunity, a community, and the possibility to access education courses through an e-learning platform.
