Journalist in Residence Fellowships for 2010 Awarded
Ralph Bollmann (taz), Ferdinand Knauß (Handelsblatt) and Christoph Seils (freelance journalist) will be "Journalists in Residence" at the MPIfG in the coming months. Two more journalists, Felix Breth (Süddeutsche Zeitung) and Ellis Fröder (WDR Fernsehen), will be in residence at the Social Science Research Center Berlin. The journalists will sit in on a research project and conduct their own research. The Journalist in Residence Program is sponsored by the Volkswagen Foundation and organized by the MPIfG, the Social Science Research Center Berlin, the Center for Social Policy Research of the University of Bremen, and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Labour Studies. One of the program goals is to promote the qualified reporting of social science issues by offering journalists close contact with researchers, the opportunity to sit in on research projects, and the use of institutional resources.
