European China Talent Program 2018

February 6, 2018

The Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2018 European China Talent Program (ECTP). Every year, the ECTP gathers a select group of 15 China-savvy young professionals and post-graduate students in Berlin to provide them with an opportunity to discuss topical issues in European China policy with senior decision makers from politics, business and civil society.

MERICS is looking forward to assembling the fourth cohort of young Europeans eager to deepen their understanding of China and its impact on Europe, to provide fresh ideas on European China policy and to become part of a unique network of future China experts. Selected candidates will also gain valuable insights into the work of MERICS, which is the largest European research institute on contemporary China. In addition, they will benefit from exchanges with a highly diverse group of participants from various China-related career paths.

At various stages throughout the program, participants are expected to work in teams to develop and present concrete policy proposals concerned with advancing European China policy. MERICS also supports follow-up publications on issues discussed during the program (e.g. contributions to the MERICS Blog).

The three-day workshop will take place from April 24 to 27, 2018 at MERICS in Berlin.

Applications should consist of a one-page CV highlighting candidates’ China-related experience and an essay of one page (max. 4000 characters).

The essay deadline is February 6, 2018.
