The Mercator Fellowship on International Affairs annually sponsors 24 German-speaking young professionals and university graduates from all disciplines who are committed to improving the world of tomorrow. During the 13-month programme, Fellows work in two or three international organizations that are active worldwide – non-governmental or non-profit organizations, or business enterprises. The Fellows’ own practical questions serve as their project proposals and determine their workstations anywhere in the world. During his fellowship year, Felix von Blücher will analyse the opportunities and challenges related to a greater harmonisation of national renewable energy policies at the European level.
Felix von Blücher, born 1987, resident in Berlin, studied International Relations (B.A.) in Dresden and at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso in Chile.

He has worked as consultant at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development in Geneva and at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. During his fellowship year, he will analyse the opportunities and challenges related to a greater harmonisation of national renewable energy policies at the European level.
