International Climate Protection Fellowships Germany is inviting applications from students and researchers working in the field of climate protection or climate-related resource conservation. The global challenge posed by climate change can only be met by cross-border international collaborations. By enabling future decision-makers and multipliers to share knowledge, methods, and techniques with specialist colleagues in Germany, the programme promotes this objective, particularly by taking account of issues relating to practical applicability in the fellows’ own countries.
