Our Research Fellow Network

Want to join our global network of researchers?

We believe that the future of Europe should be made by and for the next generation. That’s why IDRN’s researchers from all over the world are innovative and progressive thinkers who aim to change the future of Europe for the better by bringing a fresh perspective and enthusiasm to the field of European policy.

We encourage our research fellows to explore topics, undertake research and write pieces on issues that interest them and contribute to our four research themes. In this way, we can provide opportunities for the fellows to publish their proposed policy solutions.

During their time at IDRN, research fellows are provided with opportunities to meet other researchers and participate in online discussions, roundtables, panels, seminars, conferences and events; growing their network and disseminating their political problem solutions and political advocacy. We hope to bring together researchers from academia, think tanks, experts and policymakers to collaborate on an array of European issues in relation to our CAPA Mission.
