Gode nyheder!

Det meddeles netop nu, at Nordforsk har oplyst, at forskningen i tysk idealisme i de nordiske lande over de næste tre år vil blive støttet med godt og vel en million kroner.

Med andre ord: Ansøgningen om støtte til etableringen af et fællesnordisk netværk for tysk idealisme, som Anders Moe Rasmussen og Rasmus Ugilt er hovedmænd bag, er gået igennem.

Her fra bloggen skal der lyde et stort hurra. NU skal der sgu forskes!  😀
