Aim & Scope

Since 2012, the DAAD Regional Office Cairo has been organising its annual highlight event the German Science Day. This event, which currently takes place in the framework of COSIMENA,  aims to give doctoral and post-doctoral candidates from Egypt insights into the German research landscape and connect them with representatives of German universities as well as DAAD alumni. The DAAD Regional Office Cairo along with its network offer the young researchers a unique opportunity to get scientific advising for doing doctoral and post-doctoral studies in Germany. The diverse program of the German Science Week includes different formats such as: presentations of German universities, scientific talks, panel discussions, success stories from DAAD alumni and soft-skills-modules. DAAD staff also provide an overview of the German research landscape and funding opportunities from the DAAD. The German Science Week facilitates the exchange between promising doctoral and post-doctoral candidates and professors, scientists and experts from Germany and Egypt.
