Promoting education and economic growth
Academically qualified young talents represent the innovation potential for tomorrow's labour markets. Nevertheless, unemployment among young academics in Africa is high. One cause for the lack of prospects is that universities and companies only cooperate to a limited extent.
We strengthen the collaboration between universities and companies
This is where the "Practice Partnerships" programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), comes in – closing the gap between universities and industry. In the process, practically relevant content and entrepreneurial skills are integrated into degree programmes - with the participation of German and African businesses. This ensures the transfer of knowledge from companies to universities and the transfer of innovation from academia to the world of work.
In addition to the joint development of curricula, the establishment of study-related internships, career centres or realistic case studies are important elements of the partnerships. The DAAD also supports application-oriented research projects as well as consulting and networking services.
