Education And Research oriented Training in Health Sciences 2019

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.

Target Group

The EARTHS training programme is directed towards current DAAD In-Country/In-Region
scholarship holders (Master or PhD students) in developing countries who have a primary qualification in health sciences, public health, or a veterinary sciences or life sciences related field with a human health focus.

The EARTHS summer school will be held from 1st to 30th June 2019 in the beautiful harbour city of Hamburg in northern Germany at the ‘Hamburg University of Applied Sciences’ – Bergedorf Campus and the Bernhard-Nocht Institute of Tropicial Medicine.

Costs and Funding

A major part of the expenses for the EARTHS Summer School will be covered for by the
DAAD through funds provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). This includes the course fees, flight tickets, accommodation etc. Please check the EARTHS website for detailed information.
