Stephan Wassong selected as reviewer of the IOC
Prof. Dr. Stephan Wassong, Head of the Institute for Sport History and Academic & Managing Director of the Olympic Studies Centre Cologne, has been selected as reviewer of the “Advanced Olympic Research Grant Programme” of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Already in 2014, when the programme was launched for the first time, the Olympic Studies Centre of the IOC had chosen him as reviewer to evaluate selected applications.
The IOC-programme aims to promote advanced research projects in the humanities and social sciences, which deal with topics identified by the IOC. University professors, lecturers and research fellows who hold a doctorate and work at an academic or research institution are eligible to apply for the grant.
