Alumni Projects in Germany

Alumni of German higher education institutions are partners for German science and economy. With the Alumni Special Projects, the DAAD aims at supporting experts educated in Germany through furthering education, and through providing opportunities to establish contacts with the representatives of German science and economy.

The Alumni Special Projects are characterised by a combined project structure. First, alumni participate in a one-week sommer school and/or training course at a German university. Following this seminar, the participants will attend a trade fair or congress in order to update their knowledge about the latest developments and technologies in their field of expertise. Furthermore, contacts with exhibitors and potential partners can be established.
