Objectives of the Programme
This programme aims to enable universities in developing countries to specifically engage the services of German academics as advisers on how to implement clearly-defined reform measures and projects which contribute to the structure-building process at the partner university.
These German academics will provide the university, faculty or departmental management bodies, and possibly also individual university administrators, with support as advisers in the following areas:
Didactic and conceptional advice on raising the quality of teaching represents a multi-functional task to be shared by all areas.
The advice may take the form of training sessions for university administrators involved in planning and steering the university's teaching, research, services or general administration activities. However, “on the job training” or cooperation in small projects or workshops may also be suitable for this target group.
Over a period of two calendar years, DAAD can fund up to a maximum of four assignments at a partner university by any one German academic or expert. Each assignment can last between a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of three months.
Applications are submitted by a German academic (postdoc, university lecturer or emeritus professor) or by a senior university management staff member.
Applicants must be able to prove that they have the requisite teaching, research or university management expertise as well as experience in development cooperation.
DAAD can fund a German scientist/expert up to four assignments between two weeks and three months over a period of two years at a partner university.
