Impact Fellowship Programme

TFP’s unique Systems Fellowship Programme is developed exclusively for the finalists of the Innovators for the Future Call. It aims to foster the next generation of innovators who are systems focused, impact driven, and actively contribute to achieving the SDGs.

With improved systems capabilities and tailor-made training, our cohort of innovators expand their thinking, explore the interconnectedness of the challenges they address and develop joint solutions. The programme is designed and implemented with leading international academics and practitioners.

The first edition in 2021 of the 2,5-month programme was held entirely virtually. Future editions will include a 10-day in-person module at the TFP headquarters. Alumni of the programme will mentor future fellowship cohorts, thus contributing to creating a global community and fostering paradigm shifts and long-term systemic change.

It is initiatives like TFP that give you the energy, tail wind and inspiration to find ways of making the social-ecological transformation, that so many of us strive for, actually happen.

The TFP programme created a community of support, presence, and reflection. It has been both inspiring and enlightening to benefit from the programme as a fellow.
