View Mercator Science-Policy Fellowship-Programme
"Senior policy professionals in the public sector and civil society as well as journalists are facing a plethora of complex challenges. The Mercator Science-Policy Fellowship-Programme is a demand-driven and tailor-made programme for senior policy professionals and journalists, which is unique to Germany. The programme acquaints senior policy professionals and journalists with state-of-the-art research on the issues they are working on. The programme is funded by the Stiftung Mercator and administered by the strategic alliance of the Rhine-Main Universities. It offers networking opportunities for academics, senior journalists, and senior policy professionals from the public sector and civil society. Based on the thematic interests of the fellows, the Rhine-Main Universities organise face-to-face meetings with accomplished scholars in order to discuss timely questions. Fellows will spend a total of five days at the Rhine-Main Universities throughout the year. The duration of each stay at the Rhine-Main-Universities is about 2.5 days. For each stay we will arrange some eight face-to-face meetings with scientists for every fellow."
