Testimonials - Stimmen der Fellows

“I was deeply impressed by the quality and organisation of the Mercator programme. It gave me the unique opportunity to meet a large number of high-quality researchers who offered very interesting perspectives on the policy questions the European Commission deals with in the field of financial regulation. I am looking forward to staying in touch with the academics I met during the Mercator programme and benefitting from their input for policy development in the EU."

Sven Gentner, Deputy Director General, Financial Stability, DG Financial Services and Capital Markets Union, European Commission


"Very grateful to the Mercator Science Policy Fellowship Programme for allowing me to think and talk about Sustainable Finance with philosophers, economists, financial scientists and law-yers outside of the usual boxes."

Maya Hennerkes, Team Lead, Environment & Sustainability Department, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

"I am thrilled that, despite the pandemic, the programme has enabled not only to establish links with renowned scientists, but also with other policy fellows from the media sector, European institutions and German ministries. I found the interdisciplinary exchanges in particular very enriching."

Kristin Höltge, Head of the Central Asia Desk, Conflict Prevention Centre, Secretariat of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

“The Mercator Science Policy Fellowship programme offers a great opportunity for learning and professional development. The intensive programme of academic exchanges provides me with new insights and fresh perspectives relevant to my work. The organisation is excellent."
