The Academy Stavros Niarchos Foundation Senior Fellowship is a joint initiative of Chatham House and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The purpose of this fellowship is to offer established leaders and practitioners from Greece and the Greek diaspora the opportunity to develop their understanding, ideas and approaches on the most pressing challenges facing the world. Fellows will have the chance to advance their knowledge, develop research skills and build links with the policy, academic and other communities in the UK and more widely.
Chatham House will provide a dynamic base within which the fellows can pursue their own research interests; further develop their personal interaction, communication and leadership skills; extend their global networks; and deepen their expertise by contributing to the institute’s research and activities. This experience will inform the fellows’ contributions to improved regional and national decision-making on issues of great relevance to prosperity and security in Europe and the world.
The fellows are hosted by and based in research teams at Chatham House. During the fellowship, the fellow will conduct a research project of their own design. Below are examples from the autumn 2016 call for applications, however please note that these are likely to change for the spring 2017 call for applications.
