Networking for Research – German Universities of Applied Sciences and Researchers Worldwide

Schmuckbild: Kasten

Modern research is international! This requires good networking.

With its initiative Networking for Research at Universities of Applied Sciences (UDIF-HAW), the DFG is explicitly addressing UAS interested in international research collaborations or are already involved in collaborative research with partners abroad and would like to expand these.

Researchers form German UAS engage in a scientific exchange with international researchers at theme based virtual matchmaking events. The next stage then involves follow-up activities in order to intensify established contacts and get to know research conditions on site. Prior to the virtual matchmaking event, advise on DFG funding is provided in form of a virtual information event (potentially also involving the international partner funding organisation). Individual consultation is offered throughout the entire process.

To carry out projects, various DFG funding programmes are available, i.e. the Initiation of International Cooperation programme or the Individual Research Grants programme.
