About DAAD Kairo Akademie

After the success of training modules in subjects such as “Proposal Writing” and other further training sessions for DAAD alumni, and in recognition of a great need and demand for skill enhancement among academics in Egypt, DAAD Cairo has developed and professionalized this concept and established the DAAD Kairo Akademie, with modules taking place since July 2011.

Under the umbrella of the DAAD Kairo Akademie, a cluster of modules targeting different groups such as prospective applicants for scholarship programmes, postdocs, alumni, scholarship holders as well as for academics in general has been developed in cooperation with professional trainers. Module topics range from traditional areas like “Proposal Writing”, “International Networking”, “How to present Scientific Data”, to soft skills like “Effective Time Management” or “Teambuilding”. During the one-day modules, groups of about 25 participants receive intensive training in the selected subject. DAAD intends to address the need for further education to help strengthen Egyptian students and researchers in international competition by offering opportunities for further training rarely found in universities and research institutions.

Modules take place in the DAAD Cairo Office in Zamalek, or directly in universities and research institutions; participation is free of charge.

Due to the high demand for DKA modules, and in order to benefit as many academics as possible, the number of modules that each candidate may participate in will be limited to four modules this year. Thank you for your understanding!
