Ferrero YSSP Fellowship

Established in 2015, the Ferrero YSSP Fellowship supports YSSP fellows, whose research interests align with IIASA expertise and research strategy, and contribute to Ferrero's long-term commitment to sustainable sourcing of raw materials and zero deforestation.  

Ferrero has been collaborating with IIASA since 2015. With their self-set zero deforestation commitment and the RSPO certification of its palm oil, Ferrero has made a pledge to lead the transformation of consumer goods industry towards long-term sustainability. 

Ferrero’s generous support of the YSSP Fund further strengthens their commitment to spearheading an evidence-based transformation of their day-to-day business and adds more young and visionary scholars to the global zero-deforestation movement. Since 2016, Ferrero has sponsored five YSSP fellows.

The recipients of the 2018 Ferrero YSSP Fellowship are Fumi Harahap and Muhammad Nurariffudin. 

The 2017 Ferrero YSSP Fund Fellowship recipient was Nemi Vora. Read her research project abstract and a news posting about her recent success.
