Project

The Climate-Energy bursary will grant participants a deeper and more detailed insight into the respective topics and get the opportunity to work and specialize internationally alike. In 2017, the climate-energy bursary was open to Germany applicants only to spend two months in either Poland or one of the Baltic countries. It is intended to extend the programme to other EU/EEC countries in the near future.

The programme starts with a three-day orientation conference in Berlin. Subsequently, the selected fellows begin their stay at the respective media host organizations in Poland or the Baltic States with a focus on climate and energy. Each of them receives a fellowship to help cover travel costs, accommodation and personal expenses during their stay. The programme concludes with a final meeting. The participants are asked to deliver a report of their experiences. All participants stay in touch with each other through the IJP alumni network and will start to build an expert network with counterparts of their host countries in the near future.
