Diversity and equal opportunity

Diversity strengthens the future viability of our societies and scientific systems. International exchange is of central importance here. Equal opportunities, diversity and inclusion are therefore among the DAAD's strategic goals.

We increase equal opprtunities and diversity in and with our funding programmes

Equal opportunities and diversity are of fundamental importance in shaping global cooperation in higher education and research for the future. Good science and international cooperation thrive on the diversity of perspectives of all students and researchers.

We support our stakeholders with knowledge and advice

The DAAD is expanding its knowledge of diversity in international exchange and making it available to German higher education institutions and other stakeholders in order to more firmly establish diversity as a core concept of value-orientated (foreign) cultural and educational policy.
