BSE Policy Fellowships

Knowledge transfer is at the core of the INSIGHTS project and is supported via BSE Policy Fellowships. INSIGHTS provides fellowships for policymakers, so-called BSE Policy Fellowships, to foster close collaboration between academics and policymakers. The target group consists of civil servants from ministries and other public institutions and members of policy-oriented NGOs with a strong academic background and an interest in research. The fellowships finance research stays of up to three months at one of the BSE institutions. A fellowship allows policymakers and practitioners to focus on a research question, and gives them access to state-of-the-art methods and the most recent research in their area.  Applications for a Policy Fellowship need be submitted in cooperation with a junior or senior member of the BSE.

He collaborated with researchers analyzing textual data to better understand how firms' public communication may be related to their competitive performance and market outcomes.
