Every year, senior scholars nominate approximately a dozen young scholars to participate in the Jacobs Foundation’s annual conference at Marbach Castle. Invitations are extended to outstanding postdoctoral researchers whose work is directly related to the focus of the conference.
The Jacobs Young Scholars play an active and important role in conference discussions.
After the conference, these postdocs are eligible to apply for research grants related to the conference topic. Projects are evaluated based on the following criteria:
- General relevance
- Quality of the project’s design and the statistical analysis
- Innovation potential
- Alignment with the Jacobs Foundation’s strategic goals
