Individual Cooperation


Bilateral Exchange of Academics (WAP)

Objectives of the Programme

To improve international relations and bilateral research co-operations between German and foreign universities, the DAAD supports exchanges of scientists and academics from partner countries.

The aim of these reciprocal study visits is the realization of concrete research projects which should be precisely defined in advance. They are not intended for information trips of a general nature. Possible period of support is up to 3 months.

DAAD will provide a Fellowship amounting to Euros 2,000-2,150 per month (depending on academic status of the applicant), which is to cover the living expenses and accommodation in Germany. The respective university is required to take care of the flight costs.
