New Urban Progress: Selection process for fellowships

Nominees to be announced in September

From May to mid-July 2020, we were looking for twenty fellows for our New Urban Progress (NUP) program. We are currently in the selection process. The selected fellows will be announced in September.

Ten German and ten US citizens will be the main actors in our transatlantic dialogue on sustainable and equitable cities. New Urban Progress aims to revitalize and rejuvenate transatlantic relations by creating a dialogue between researchers, journalists, academics, practitioners, start-up founders and metro-level problem solvers or city administration workers. Our fellows are active in all these areas. They are future leaders in local civic engagement, in business, urban planning, politics or a comparable field. The expertise of our fellows will enrich the program and form the basis for the transatlantic dialogue. The focus of this dialogue is on improving the development of innovative, networked and fair metropolitan regions.

New Urban Progress offers the fellows a first-class platform to present their work and to get to know and use the large international network of actors in the field of urban development policy. The fellowships for New Urban Progress start in autumn 2020 and end in summer 2022.

Further information on the program can be found on our project website.
