DAAD SPACES II CaBuDe – Scholarships 2021/2022 for study in Germany.

Application Deadline: Ongoing

In the framework of the programme SPACES II of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), researchers from Germany, South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia conduct scientific collaboration projects to investigate climate processes, the global climate change, and their consequences in the region of Southern Africa. Sustainability is one focus of this research.

Sustainable research requires early support for young experts in research and education at universities and research institutes, including industry-related ones, in Germany and the participating African countries South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia. Good networking, close coordination and long-term cooperation of these nations are of equal importance.

The accompanying DAAD scholarship programme “Capacity Building/Development” (CaBuDe) aims at developing the required capacities. The programme will enable scholarship holders from Southern Africa to research, to network and to be (further) educated in Germany, in order to become experts for the sustainable scientific-technical cooperation between their home countries and Germany. The same applies to the short-term research scholarship holders from Germany under this programme.
