The second year (2020) will focus on the topic "Israel and Germany in the Year of the US Presidential Election: National Narratives, Identities and Foreign Policy". Cooperation partners include the American Jewish Committee (AJC), the European Leadership Network (ELNET), the foreign policy magazine Internationale Politik (IP) and Women in International Security (WIIS).

Under the patronage of Sigmar Gabriel, former Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs and chairman of the Atlantik-Brücke, the foundation awards fellowships to young journalists working on foreign and socio-political issues that will continue to be relevant in Israel and Germany in the future.

The projects are discussed with experts in closed workshops, presented at public conferences and published.
