With a wealth of experience in science, politics and the non-profit sector, Klaus Töpfer embodies the unique combination of perspectives that underpin the vision of the IASS. With its Klaus Töpfer Sustainability Fellowship, the IASS wants to support individuals who, like Klaus Töpfer, are committed to sustainable development and work to build bridges between science, politics, and society.
The IASS is currently seeking applications from highly talented young early to mid-career professionals from Germany or abroad who have worked for at least ten years on sustainability issues and have the potential to serve as change agents towards sustainable development. Applicants should be innovative minds and practitioners in their respective fields in science, the arts, civil society, business, politics or other sectors, and have work experience across different countries and cultures.
The Klaus Töpfer Sustainability Fellowship is awarded for one year. The Fellow is expected to work on site at the IASS during their fellowship and actively contribute to the work of the institute by holding seminars and participating in other IASS activities, for example.
