The Atlantic Expedition is a German-American fellowship program initiated by the non-profit organization Atlantische Initiative e.V.

The fellowship aims to empower a younger and more diverse generation of leaders in transatlantic relations. Throughout the program, participants from both sides of the Atlantic discuss and implement creative and innovative ideas on how to modernize transatlantic relations.

By assembling a diverse team of leaders of tomorrow, the fellowship aims to reform and reinvigorate the transatlantic partnership, ensuring that it better reflects the evolving priorities of modern society. Fellows have the opportunity to publish their policy and communication ideas, meet with decision-makers and opinion leaders, network and collaborate with their peers, and travel together to the United States and Germany.

The first Atlantic Expedition took place in February and March 2017 - read more about our fellows' ideas and policy recommendations in their joint Atlantic Memo.

The second Atlantic Expedition with a focus on communication and a new transalantic narrative takes place from 9-14 October in Chicago and Houston. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
