Call for Applications 2019:Project development for knowledge transfer

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), with financial support from the German
Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), supports academic qualification measures for individuals from developing countries who participate in the In-Country / In-Region Scholarship Programme. Every year the DAAD awards more than 1,000 BMZ-funded scholarships to junior researchers from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, South East Asia and South Asia to help finance their master’s or PhD programmes in their home country or region. These programmes which generally have a strong development-related focus, aim to enable trained professionals to address and deal with diverse issues in developing countries. A further aim of this programme is to sustainably improve the teaching and research conditions in the partner countries and strengthen their higher education structures.

Until now participants of the In-Country / In-Region Programme could only apply for aresearch visit to Germany on a case-by-case basis. To increase research visits to Germany and enable scholarship holders to further strengthen their subject-specific and interdisciplinary skills the DAAD is collaborating with German universities to offer summer schools for scholarship holders.

In order to improve the quality of study stays in Germany, the DAAD offers in cooperation with the international SEPT programme (Small Enterprise Promotion and Training) located at Leipzig University, Germany, an intensive one-month training workshop - Project development for knowledge transfer - on topics related to the improvement of teaching skills and personal development in this field.

The training course will be open for students on Master´s level or PhD students of all diciplines.
