Emeriti Programme (Herder)
Objectives of the Programme
The initiative "Johann Gottfried Herder" is a cooperation between DAAD, the non-profit Hertie Foundation, the Robert Bosch Foundation and the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft.
Its mandate is to support and facilitate the deployment of retired German university professors to universities all over the world. The initiative targets retired German university professors of all fields; in exceptional cases, retired leaders from the private sector or administration, who are interested in a long-term lectureship (at least one semester) at a host university, can also be considered.
Emphasis is put on projects which are carried out by or in cooperation with German universities abroad.
