You are an international science journalist and interested in the working life of the future? Apply now for the “Research in Germany” press tour on the future of work!

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) invites a delegation of 15 international science journalists on a press tour to Germany on the future of work from 21 to 26 October 2018.

The way we are working is changing fast. Digitisation, automation and globalisation are having a profound impact on the world of work. How and where will we work in the future? What kind of skills and education will we need? Will robots and intelligent machines take our jobs? This press tour picks up the topic of the "Science Year 2018 – Working Life of the Future", and sets out to explore the challenges and opportunities of the working life of the future. Journalists will meet researchers and developers at German research institutes, universities and companies.

Who can apply?
Journalists specialised in the coverage of science, technology, economics, sociology or future studies are welcome to apply. Former participants of press tours organised by the DAAD may apply again.

The deadline for applications is Monday, 21 May 2018, 23.59 pm (CEST). Applicants will be notified by 11 June 2018.
