Virtual Exchange and Networking Event between universities in Baden-Württemberg and African countries hosted by the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung (foundation).

The virtual event takes place on November 30, 2021 from 10 – 2 pm. The aim of the event is to create a platform for networking and thus an exchange of ideas on how to foster new partnerships between the participating academic institutions. Apart from that 9 short workshops focusing on best practice in international cooperation between BW and African countries are also included in the programme. So far, Universities of Tübingen, Freiburg, Heidelberg and Hohenheim among others have confirmed their participation.

The online platform for registration and communication is already open! Please join us at:

The Baden-Württemberg Stiftung is one of the largest foundations in Germany and provides approx. 1.500 scholarships annually thru the Baden-Württemberg Stipendium (, the English website will be available soon). Additionally, in December 2021 the new application round for joint projects funded by the foundation will be advertised and this would be a wonderful opportunity to foster international cooperation among universities.
