Part 1 (June 7th until June 18th 2021): Digital Workshop Sessions, Entrepreneurship & Innovation
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), with financial support provided by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), supports academic qualification measures for individuals from developing countries who participate in the In-Country/In-Region Programme. The programme aims to enable trained professionals to address and deal with diverse societal, economic, and ecological issues in developing countries. A further objective is to sustainably improve the teaching and research conditions in the partner regions and to strengthen their higher education profile.
As an additional offer for scholarship holders of the In-Country/In-Region Programme, the DAAD cooperates with German universities in organising a range of summer schools in Germany. One of these four-week measures is the training workshop "Project development for knowledge transfer" offered in cooperation with the International SEPT Program (Small Enterprise Promotion and Training) located at Leipzig University, Germany. At the heart of this summer school is an individual project idea, which participants are required to include already in their application. A project idea canvas template will be provided. This canvas enables the applicants to further develop their ideas in the course of the training. Course content will always reflect on and relate to these projects.
