DAAD Research Ambassadors

DAAD has an extensive network of Research Ambassadors spread over India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Research Ambassadors are senior academicians and scientists who have a long standing relationship with Germany.

DAAD Research Ambassadors have been involved in advanced research projects in Germany and are interested in promoting research in Germany among peers and students. Research Ambassadors help enthuse and inform others about the rich and varied opportunities to conduct research, receive project funding, and initiate collaborative projects with colleagues in Germany. Feel free to get in touch with one of our Research Ambassadors to get insights into the German research landscape.
