New: Transnational Fellowship for Policy Professionals of EU Institutions and international organisations

The Rhine-Main-Universities are currently developing a transnational fellowship scheme for policy professionals of EU Institutions and international organisations in cooperation with the University of GranadaLumière University Lyon 2, and BETA Technological Centre (University of Vic/Central University of Catalonia)

This transnational scheme would enable policy professionals of the 2024/2025 fellowship cohort who are interested in issues of green and digital transitions to meet researchers in Granada, Lyon, Barcelona, or Vic in 2025. 

Interested applicants can indicate on the application form if they are interested in this option. Our partner universities will send lists of possible conversation partners at their universities to accepted applicants in the second half of 2024. 

Since the joint fellowship scheme is under development, accepted policy professionals from EU Institutions and international organisations can decide by early 2025 whether to visit one of our partner universities in 2025 or conduct another round of meetings at the Rhine-Main-Universities in 2025.

Please tick the boxes on the application form if interested in the transnational track.
