Two FIW doctoral students receive scholarship by the Fulbright commission

Daniela Russ und Julia Schubert were both awarded a grant for a six month research stay in the US.

 

Daniela Russ decided to stay as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the School of International and Public Affairs of Columbia University, New York. During her time in the US, she will look more closely into the emergence of the "energy industry" as a field shaped by new professions, institutions, and novel ways of economic modeling in the 20th century.

Julia Schubert will be a doctoral fellow at the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research (CSTPR) in Boulder, Colorado. During her research stay, she will study the institutional interface of scientific expertise and politics in the case of political decision-making on Climate Engineering technologies in the US. Her work focuses on the question of how scientific expertise is becoming relevant to political decision-making processes.
