Report Research School Plus funding enabled me to accomplish a research stay at Seattle University. During my six-week research stay I discussed my research project with two of the leading experts in the field. The feedback I received allowed me to design and develop a questionnaire for assessing pro-environmental behavior addressing American football fans, which is now in the field. I got extensive insights into topically related research projects and feedback on my previous work that really improved my doctoral project. Moreover, I had the chance to attend a sustainability convening in Seattle and got invited to a mentoring program for PhD students. Besides learning a lot, I met very nice people.
