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.

As an additional offer for scholarship holders of the In-Country/In-Region Programme, the DAAD cooperates with German universities in organizing a range of summer schools in Germany. One of these is the IDEA Summer School offered in cooperation with the International SEPT Competence Center (Small Enterprise Promotion and Training) located at Leipzig University, Germany.

The aim of the online summer school is to enable the participants to plan and implement their projects for knowledge transfer. Therefore, the project ideas are at the heart of the IDEA summer school. We will focus on three channels of knowledge transfer: Innovation, entrepreneurship (business idea development) and teaching.
