Fellowship for cross disciplinary thinkers to promote social change

A new fellowship programme from the E.ON Foundation in partnership with E-WERK Luckenwalde, aimed at researchers, scientists, and activists, seeks to develop a fresh body of knowledge about the needs and impact of the sustainable transformation towards climate neutrality.

The interdisciplinary team will be based at E-WERK Luckenwalde, Brandenburg and will be invited to investigate how society – and the people who act and operate within its bounds – will change during the journey towards achieving climate neutrality. Fellows can pick from one of seven fields of research. These range from the future of personal transport in the context of local requirements to the impact of the responsible and flexible handling of energy resources on a day-to-day level, and the value of data in light of the continued advance of digital processes. The interplay between climate action and security will also be investigated.

Each Fellow will be provided with a monthly grant of EUR 1,300 for the duration of this nine-month programme. The programme also contributes towards covering a portion of research costs.

Deadline 15 May 2022
