Swiss Research Foundation Launches New Blog

The Jacobs Foundation has launched a new blog designed to share the newest insights into how young people learn and develop. 

BOLD, or Blog on Learning and Development, will feature print pieces and videos produced by leading researchers, science journalists, policymakers and practitioners at various stages in their careers. Two of the blog's first contributors, Meeri Kim and Jack O'Sullivan, are inaugural Jacobs Foundation Science Writers Fellows. 

This year, a new crop of fellows will come together in Zurich to collaborate with psychologists, researchers and journalists from premier Swiss research institutions and the Swiss Science Writers Association. They will also work closely with the 2016 Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize recipient, a leading international scholar in the field of child and youth development.
