The Fellowship sets out to explore the role of technology and innovation policy in addressing environmental concerns and to develop proposals for future policy work in this area.
The Israel Public Policy Institute (IPPI) offers young professionals from Germany an opportunity to participate in a Fellowship program in cooperation with the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Ministry for Environmental Protection on the theme of “Environmental Innovation”.
The Fellows program provides young public policy professionals from Germany with an opportunity to work alongside practitioners at the Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection and the Heinrich Böll Foundation and learn about how the Israeli government works to promote frameworks that capitalize on the available technological solutions to support sustainable policies.
