In 2022 the programme aims at being in person but might move online or hybrid depending on the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. During programme, fellows prepare one or more research papers and present a seminar on their research findings. They may also have the opportunity to publish their research in the WIDER Working Paper Series.
