Global Fellows Talks

As part of our Global Fellows Month, we will launch an online talk series on February 9th with the title "Reset Germany - what follows after the Merkel era? The Global Fellows Talks look ahead." The Global Fellows Talks aim to deepen the international exchange on relevant topics in Germany / Europe and the world. Fellows and alumni of all IJP programmes will have the opportunity to discuss relevant developments in politics, business, science and society with selected panelists. 

If you have any questions, please send an email to
