The integration of interdisciplinary research from within a comparative international setting into policy-making is essential in addressing the societal challenges of the 21st century. This vision stands at the core of the IPPI Fellowship program, which offers young professionals from around the world the opportunity to learn first-hand about Israeli policy-making while using their knowledge and international perspective to work together with Israeli experts on key national and international policy challenges.

The IPPI offers Fellows the opportunity to develop their ideas within an international community of world-class researchers, to engage with the latest developments in their fields of expertise in Israel, and to establish working relations with practitioners from government, business and civil society.

By offering a platform for international researchers and political decision-makers to exchange, we are building new bridges between Israel and the world, establishing a platform for cooperation and dialogue and fostering a broad network of like minded policy professionals.

The objectives of the Fellowship Program

  • Build new personal and professional relations between policy experts and institutions from Israel and abroad
  • Foster an international network of policy experts that are engaged in the fields of environment and sustainability, international security, digitalization and foreign policy to promote innovative ideas and international cooperation to successfully tackle common societal challenges
  • Connect research with policy and advance evidence-based policy making
  • Familiarize policy professionals with international best practices and help to promote effective and informed public policy
