EHRI organizes several expert meetings and regional workshops. The overall objective of the EHRI experts' workshop is to generate a creative exchange of knowledge and views between experts in various methodological subfields of Holocaust research and documentation. The regional workshops are targeted at a more general audience that wants to get acquainted with EHRI. The expert meetings and workshops are always held at one of EHRI’s partner institutions. The latest calls and dates can be found on the Events & Workshops page and the EHRI Agenda for 2014 and 2015. Various news articles have been written about the workshops. On a yearly basis an EHRI experts newsletter is published.

EHRI has a fellowship programme. Every year twelve researchers are invited to stay for a period of four weeks to two months at an EHRI partner institute.
