DAAD launches new programme on SDG bilateral graduate colleges

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), with financial support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has launched a new programme supporting seven bilateral partnerships between higher education institutions in Germany and developing countries to build bilateral graduate colleges. These colleges, to be established in developing countries with a main focus on Africa, are to draw attention to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the United Nations determined in the 2015 agenda “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. Through the programme, German partner universities train teaching staff and specialized experts at Master, PhD and Post-Doc level on site, so that in the future they can help addressing development related aspects.
