The DAAD wishes to strengthen the potential of academically qualified refugees and provide them access to higher education in Germany. In collaboration with universities and partner organisations, the DAAD is developing various programmes to promote integration of refugees at German universities.
To support sustainable development DAAD offers both scholarships for studies – in Germany and within home regions – and university cooperation programmes. The programmes mainly enhance human capacity, further quality and relevance of learning, and contribute to solving global challenges.
The core mission of the DWIH is to represent German science, research and innovation at their respective locations. Work takes place in the following areas: “Information, advertising and marketing”, “Exchange and networks”, and “Service and advice”.
