The DAAD Tunis invites Libyan higher education institutions to an information and training seminar in Tunis, in November 2017

For the fourth time since 2016, the DAAD Tunis organizes a seminar for Libyan higher education institutions in Tunisia. The Libyan partners have a great interest in “study and research in Germany”, in the “DAAD funding programs” and in contacts with German higher education and research institutions: 150 teachers, researchers and staff of international offices from Libya applied for the DAAD’s call for applications.  The DAAD funds the stay, travel and seminar costs for 20 Libyan partners with means of the German Arabic Transformation partnership.

“We did not expect this many applications”, says the DAAD Tunis, “we initially reserved a number of 15 spots which we then increased to 20, once we saw the vast interest in the training. The applicants have excellent profiles, they work for Libyan higher education and research institutions and are important multipliers for us.”

Libya is a partner country of the German-Arabic transformation partnerships and can apply for programs at German higher education institutions. The DAAD university-cooperation and individual funding programs are not yet sufficiently known in Libya. Since 2016, the DAAD Tunis enlarges its network in Libya. The current database counts around 180 contacts of higher education and research institutions. The ministry of education of the Government of National Accord of Libya supports the DAAD Tunis with forwarding information and finding new partners.
