Global Centres Conferences 2024

Picture of a group Global Centres

In September 2024 the Mid-Term Conferences of the DAAD Global Centres take place in Berlin. All necessary information regarding participation, programme and organisational issues can be found here.

After a successful opening conference in September 2022, the next conferences of the DAAD Global Centres are already being planned. This time, the Global Centres for Climate and Environment and the Global Centres for Health and Pandemic Preparedness will mainly have separate conferences, that take place simultaneously and will have common parts.

  1. Conference of the Centres for Climate and Environment: "Imaginaries of Climate Futures - Cross Regional Insights to get from Knowledge to Action" and
  2. Conference of the Centres for Health and Pandemic Prevention: "Global Actions for Sustainable Health for People and Planet"

The aim of the conferences is fostering the networks of the Centres and similar initiatives, and to offer a global, interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge in the two subject areas of Global Health/Pandemic Prevention and Climate/Environment. On this website interested parties can find all necessary information on the conferences. The website will be constantly updated. 

Date & Venue

The Conference takes place from 10-12 September 2024 at Tagungswerk, Lindenstraße 85, 10969 Berlin.

Advisory Boards

In order to ensure that the conferences meet the needs and expectations of the academics at
the Centres, academic advisory boards with representatives of all Global Centres have been formed and accompany the planning process of the conferences. The tasks of the advisory board members include the participation in the programme conception, the preparation of the call for conference contributions (presentations, workshops, panels etc.), the selection of the proposals as well as the active participation in the conference itself.

Call for Presentations and Sessions

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is pleased to kindly invite academics and research-active practitioners from DAAD-funded Global Centres and their Partner Networks, as well as from other DAAD-funded projects working in the field of Climate and Environment or Health and Pandemic Prevention to take part in the scientific networking conference by taking part in the call for presentations and sessions. This provides an opportunity for senior scientists, researchers, and young investigators and PhD students from different projects to present ongoing and/or planned research projects and/or their findings to a wider global audience.

For more information (background, theme, modalities, timeframe etc.), please refer to:


The programme is still being developed and depends on the proposals for presentations and sessions. As soon as the programme is finalised, it will be published here.


Registration is expected to open in spring 2024. All information can be found on this website, which is constantly being updated.
