STDF and DAAD announced the result of the 11th GE-SEED call for 2018/2019 in December and opened the new call for 2021/22.

As an outcome of the German-Egyptian Year of Science & Technology in 2007, the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Federal Republic of Germany jointly started financing a scholarship programme between the Science and Technology Development Fund (STDF) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Its aim is to continue academic and scientific cooperation and deepening the efforts that has been exerted during the year. Both parties were pleased to announce the final result of the 11th call for the German Egyptian Mobility Program for Scientific Exchange and Excellence Development (GE-SEED) for the academic year 2018/2019 in December 2019. Seven joint research projects covering the following specialties have been awarded the scholarship:

  • Engineering sciences
  • Basic Sciences
  • Medical sciences

The GE-SEED programme aims at supporting bilateral mobility between Egyptian and German scientific teams with special emphasis on young scientists (Master and PhD students), and within the framework of a jointly submitted research project for a period of up to two years. The main goal of this programme is to encourage partnerships between both sides and enhance collaboration and technology transfer.

For interested candidates, we would like to announce that the GE-SEED 12th Call for the academic year 2021/2022 is open now for application from the 4th of May till the 30th of June 2020.
