There are Research and study funding opportunities in Germany for Griffith University students and faculty with German Academic Exchange Service, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Australian German Research Network
The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service)
A brief look at history shows that the DAAD has a long tradition of uniting people and academia. Founded in Heidelberg in 1925 on the initiative of a single student, the DAAD has since become one of the most important funding organisations worldwide for the international exchange of students and researchers.
Since it was founded, around two million scholars in Germany and abroad have received DAAD funding. Its activities go far beyond simply awarding grants and scholarships promoting international collaboration. Its budget is derived mainly from the federal funding for various ministries, primarily the German Federal Foreign Office, but also from the European Union.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH)
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promotes academic cooperation between scientists and scholars from abroad and from Germany. AvH- research fellowships and research awards allow researchers to come to Germany to work on a research project in collaboration with a local German partner. Scientists or scholars from Germany can profit from the AvH's support to carry out a research project abroad including Australia as a guest of one of more than 29,000 Humboldt Foundation alumni worldwide - the Humboldtians.
The Australian German Research Network (AGRN)
The AGRN is a joint initiative by the German Embassy in Canberra and the Australian Embassy in Berlin. The interactive network is hosted on the social media platform for professionals, LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13531832.
This group is dedicated to Australian researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators interested in collaborating with Germany and vice versa. It offers the opportunity to connect with likeminded colleagues in Germany and Australia, promote your research or company, find new collaborators, identify funding opportunities and business partners, and stay informed about all things happening in the bilateral Australian-German research and innovation space. It is open to all disciplines including natural sciences, engineering, humanities, political and social sciences, as well as stakeholders from industry, government, funding agencies and other.
