Project Goals

The implementation is carried out through five operational objectives, which focus on strengthening the international competencies of students, promoting research collaboration, building and expanding a network of German and Ethiopian companies, and achieving a structural and sustainable integration of new internationalization measures.

The current funding period started in January 2023 and runs until December 2024.
