The regional desk Latin America and Africa
The regional desk for Latin America and Africa supports the faculties in the further development and coordination of international collaborations in both regions. Within Latin America, the University of Göttingen collaborates with 62 universities in 12 countries. Of particular importance is the close cooperation of German and Colombian universities within the German-Colombian Peace Institute. In Africa, the Faculty of Theology, the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and the Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology are active in several research projects together with 27 universities in 13 African countries. The University of Göttingen offers joint master's and doctoral programmes together with universities in Argentina, Chile, Egypt, Sudan and South Africa. The desk also participates in funding programmes (DAAD, Erasmus+, KA107).
