DAAD and Universities Australia plan nationwide cooperation

Australia is one of Germany’s most important partners in international academic cooperation. Likewise, Australia recently designated Germany as one of its strategic partners in academic cooperation. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has funded more than 280 research collaborations between German and Australian universities since 2005. However, only thirteen Australian universities had been eligible to participate in the funding programme until now. A letter of intent between the DAAD and the Australian higher education association “Universities Australia” now paves the way for project collaboration with all universities on the Australian continent.
