The Falling Walls Foundation offers this year again a Fellowship for Journalists. In an effort to keep the public informed on life-changing scientific breakthroughs, it brings together a group of outstanding journalists from all over the world. The selected fellows get the opportunity to attend the Falling Walls events in Berlin on 8 and 9 November where they can experience world-class science and share their knowledge with over 700 leaders from academia, business, politics, media and the arts. The fellowship is aimed at journalists and bloggers with at least three years of experience, who wish to advance their knowledge in the area of sciences. It includes travel expenses, accommodation and the conference fees.
The call for applications for the Falling Walls Fellowship is still open until 25 June 2017 and we would very much appreciate if you would share it again with your members and your network.
