The Robert Bosch Academy offers international opinion leaders, decision-makers, and experts a residency for several months in Berlin.


Richard von Weizsäcker Fellowship

The Richard von Weizsäcker Fellowship was established in honor of the former federal president who served for many years on the Board of Trustees of the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The fellowship offers a residency of several months in Berlin to outstanding personalities from around the world.

The residency provides Richard von Weizsäcker Fellows with the intellectual and physical space to pursue individual research and outreach activities on future-oriented topics in an international context. The Fellowship enables them to engage and study beyond their normal professional commitments.

To foster dialogue with the German and international public, the Robert Bosch Academy organizes an extensive program of discussions and events tailored to the interests of the fellows. By engaging with the fellows, German experts and decision-makers gain new perspectives on major social and political issues; in turn, fellows expand their networks and enrich their expertise with insights into German and European policy debates and decision-making processes.

While the fellows come from a wide array of backgrounds, they are united in their desire to learn more about Berlin and Germany. The Robert Bosch Academy offers its community of fellows a comprehensive program with insights into German history, politics, economy, and society.
