DAAD funding programme Eastern Partnerships

The DAAD funding programme Eastern Partnerships supports since 1974 German universities in strengthening their partnerships with universities in Central Eastern, South-eastern and Eastern Europe as well as the Caucasus and Central Asia. It contributes to the expansion of international relations through education and research and to the promotion of intercultural dialog. Currently, about 80 German universities cooperate with about 290 international universities within the programme. The HTW Dresden has been actively involved since 1993.


HTWDgoesEU - Development and Implementation of a EU-Research strategy at the University of Applied Sciences Dresden

The HTW Dresden intends to undergo an internal strategic transformation through HTWgoesEU, with an EU research strategy aimed at systematically increasing the successful acquisition of EU research funding. Twenty-three universities of applied science participate in the "EU-Strategie-FH" program, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). These institutions have set out to position themselves strategically in relation to European research topics and to increase the visibility and recognition of applied science and the corresponding institutions in Europe.
