International Mobility and Cooperation through Digitalisation 

Access to and participation in research and higher education are becoming increasingly global. Physical mobility coupled with virtual access, teaching and cooperation options open up potential for rapid structural change with fundamental shifts in learning, knowledge and skills acquisition, as well as for international cooperation opportunities. Thus, universities get innovative possibilities to develop physical and virtual mobility opportunities for their students across borders with appealing partners and to offer students clearly structured and administratively secured forms of digital participation in international educational programmes, also as a way to attract highly qualified international students. This results in the sustainable development of local teaching and learning conditions and in the establishment of new forms of international cooperation. Among other things, this requires an increased alignment of teaching and students’ mentoring to the model of the Student Journey.

In order to support the internationalisation and profile development of German universities through the digitalisation of teaching and student mobility, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) relies on the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to fund the "International Mobility and Cooperation through Digitalisation" programme.

Call for Applications: German-Arab Transformation Partnership: Cooperation with Higher Education Institutions in Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan, Libya and Morocco 

Since 2011, Germany accompanies the political changes in the ‘Arab region through the transformation partnership programme. University education as well as academic cooperation play an important role in times of social and political change. It is the task of universities to create academic training possibilities and capabilities of scientific innovation of these countries, and furthermore, to be a space of negotiation and positioning. The programme of the German-Arab Transformation Partnership created additional chances for the development of reforms in Arabic universities and the cooperation with German partners. Within the collaboration between German and Arabic university modernization in teaching, structural development in scientific research and management as well as the improvement of graduate employability play a crucial role at the Arabic partner institutions and are the center of the cooperation projects.

DAAD boosts the academic cooperation with Libya

The university cooperation and the academic exchange with Libya give important inputs to the political process and have signaling effect. Despite the unstable situation in the country, the universities are functioning well, regular teaching and research operations are taking place and foreign relations are maintained. There is a high interest from Libyan partners and students in cooperation and exchange with Germany.

For decades, the DAAD has promoted academic cooperation with Libya and offers scholarships to students and scholars from Libya to study and research in Germany. University cooperation is funded by projects within the framework of the program “German-Arab Transformation Partnership”.

Last year 25 Libyans, with DAAD scholarships, had the opportunity to study and research in Germany. Also for 2018/19, Libyan applicants have successfully applied for a DAAD scholarship. We congratulate Mr. Belnaser Busnena from the University of Benghazi on the DAAD doctoral scholarship and Mr. Melad Haweyou, also from the University of Benghazi, on the DAAD EPOS scholarship.
