International DAAD Alumni Seminar "Scientific Communication- (new) actors and challenges" - Tropentag 2015


Great interest of Alumni in scientific communication and networking with Göttingen
The Centre of Biodiversity and Sustainable Land Use (Section Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture and Forestry) organized in mid-September an alumni seminar on „Scientific Communication – (new) actors and challenges" in Göttingen. The seminar was financially supported by the DAAD. Selected out of 440 applicants, 12 female and 13 male DAAD alumni from 24 developing countries met for a multidisciplinary practice exchange in the field of sustainable land use management. The discussion with the participants from research institutions, government departments, consulting services and NGOs showed that there are complex communication challenges from local to international level.

After the workshop the group traveled together with alumni from Witzenhausen to the Tropentag 2015 in Berlin with more than 1,000 participants. mehr...
