Think Visegrad Fellowship 2017

EUROPEUM is one of eight receiving institutions taking part in the Think Visegrad Fellowship program.

Think Visegrad, funded by the International Visegrad Fund, is a think tank plat­form for struc­tured dia­logue on issues of strate­gic regional impor­tance. The plat­form aims to ana­lyze key issues for the Visegrad Group (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia), and pro­vides rec­om­men­da­tions to the gov­ern­ments of the V4 coun­tries, the annual pres­i­den­cies of the Group, and the International Visegrad Fund. 

In addi­tion, Think Visegrad pro­vides vis­it­ing fel­low­ships to non-Visegrad expert fel­lows. Together with other core network think tanks, EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy will host one non-V4 expert fel­low, who will have the oppor­tu­nity to take part in the institute’s activ­i­ties for a period of up to eight weeks. During this period, he or she will be expected to develop a pol­icy paper and deliver one pub­lic pre­sen­ta­tion on a pre-agreed topic. A lump sum of €3,000 will be given to the selected vis­it­ing fel­low to cover all nec­es­sary costs and expen­di­tures related to his or her stay at the host­ing insti­tute (e.g. lodg­ing and local trans­port). He or she will also be respon­si­ble for pay­ing all taxes and related fees, includ­ing health and social insur­ance, from this amount. Think VisegradV4 Think Tank Platform will cover the cost of travel to the host­ing insti­tute for the vis­it­ing fellow.

Topics: Fellowships are avail­able in all areas of research in polit­i­cal sci­ence, inter­na­tional rela­tions and eco­nom­ics. Chosen top­ics should com­ple­ment our research focus, and there­fore the appli­cants are highly rec­om­mended to check our web­site before sub­mit­ting an application.

Duration: The dura­tion of the fel­low­ship will be of 6 up to 8 weeks

Eligibility: Expert fel­lows from non-Visegrad coun­tries with at least five years expe­ri­ence in their field of research are eli­gi­ble. Preference will be given to appli­cants who have already made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion in their field.

Deadline: Application dossiers con­sist­ing of the appli­ca­tion form, struc­tured CV (includ­ing the list of pub­li­ca­tions) and a moti­va­tion let­ter (max­i­mum 300 words) are to be sub­mit­ted to thinktank@sfpa.sk by April 28, 2017.

You can find the official application and more details about this project in the PDF documents attached on the right.
