Jacobs Fellows from all over the world are gathering at Marbach Castle, Lake Constance, Germany, this week. Research Fellows and Business Fellows will be sharing their achievements during the fellowship period, talk about their plans and project implementations as well as their key research questions.
They all will benefit from a program that offers group discussions, networking, and opportunities for them to engage with Foundations that are present. The meeting this year focuses on facilitating collaboration between Research Fellows as well as across sectors with Business Fellows.
This year, the Jacobs Foundation is delighted to welcome Greg. J. Duncan, Distinguished Professor at the School of Education from the University of California, Irvine, as key note speaker. For his research on the long-term consequences of poverty in early childhood Greg J. Duncan was awarded the Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize 2013.
The annual conference will take place from the 17th to the 21st April 2018. It will bring together more than 60 researchers and professionals.
