University Fairs

Hüttermann / DAAD

This is where interested foreign students can talk to German universities and research organisations directly. Personal meetings have their benefits.

International university fairs are a good opportunity for international students to familiarise themselves with the educational and university landscape in Germany. Universities introduce themselves and their course offers and provide an insight into the objectives, content and methods of individual subjects. University fairs also give you the opportunity to communicate with students, lecturers and professors directly. Personal discussions give you the chance to clarify specific questions on admission requirements, courses or degrees, which the Internet alone cannot explain.

2.German non-university research institutions: Here you will get information on the prestigious research institutes of the Max Planck Society, Helmholtz Society and Leibniz Association and the opportunities they offer.
3.Funding for a research stay in Germany: Funding organisations present their portfolios, explain their eligibility and funding criteria and help you find the right funding instrument.
4.Research jobs in German companies: If you’d rather do your research in a company and develop marketable products “made in Germany” you can talk to our experts from the enterprise sector.
5.First hand experiences from German research alumni: Those who went down that road already can tell you best how to do it, where to get advice, where to start and what to expect.
6.Research management in Germany: Learn more about this growing sector of professional research managers – they work in the research system, closely together with researchers and scientists.

Feria Universitaria del Libro
Date: 26.08 - 04.09

Smart City is an emerging topic since it is perceived as a winning strategy to cope with severe urban problems such as traffic, pollution, energy consumption, waste treatment, and severe weather events. Having combined the concepts of digital city, green city, and knowledge city, a Smart City is a complex, long-term vision of a better urban area, aiming at reducing its environmental footprint and at creating better quality of life for citizens.
Mobility is one of the most difficult topics facing metropolitan large areas. It involves both environmental and economic aspects, and needs both advanced technologies and changes in people behaviours. Largely permeated by ICT, Smart Mobility is used in various applications to support the optimization of traffic fluxes, and collect citizens¡¦ opinions about liveability in cities and quality of clean and non-motorized transport services.
This conference is aimed to bring together international experts, scholars and policy-makers to exchange and discuss the best practices of Smart City and Smart Mobility, and its applicability in the context of developing cities.
Since a large number of cities are increasingly vulnerable to severe weather events such as heavy rainfalls and tidal floods, the conference will discuss solutions for weather-responsive traffic management as new approaches to smart mobility as well as smarter cities.
Thematic Topics
(i) Global Trends in Urbanization, Energy Challenges and Climate Change Adaptation
(ii) Smart City: Concept, Infrastructure and Technologies
(iii) Smart Mobility: Concept, Structure and Solutions
o Including Technologies and Behavioral Changes
(iv) Dynamic Traffic Management and Smart Transportation system
o Including Weather-Responsive Traffic Management
It is expected to receive the participation of about 100 participants, including:
„h Academicians from Universities & Research Institutes
„h Practitioners from Urban and Transport Authorities
„h International Experts and Consultants
„h University students
