The team of the DAAD office branch Cairo is looking forward to your visit


The DAAD office branch Cairo is located on the Nile island Zamalek in the heart of Cairo. Since 1960, the German Academic Exchange Service has a branch in Egypt and thus offers its services there since 54 years. Not only Students, Researchers and Scientists profit from its advisory and consultant services, but also cultural interested travelers and locals often drop by.

The Cairo branch offers consultation on scholarships and funding possibilities and also holds various cultural activities and events, such as lectures and conferences. Whatever concerns you, a scholarship, an interesting lecture or just general information about life in Egypt.

Cooperation with the Transition Countries Egypt and Tunisia

Call for Applications 2015


The Egyptian and the Tunisian people attained the resignation of their authoritarian governments by peaceful demonstrations in the beginning of 2011. The people’s dauntless commitment for democracy, responsible government and constitutionality deeply impressed the global public. Germany supports this process of democratization actively. Thus, the German government already made suggestions for a new transformation partnership by the end of January 2011. As a result, Egypt and Tunisia get the support that is needed for the democratic change. The central role in this period is assigned to the universities of both countries. The DAAD  supports several measures aiming at strengthening the higher education in these destinations with funds from the Federal Foreign Office, beginning in 2012. Central aspects of these measures will be the Universities’ contribution to research and teaching in order to support civil societal and democratic structures and the transformation process on the one hand, as well as strengthening the scientific and technological performance of these countries on the other hand.

Possible Arab partner countries: besides Egypt and Tunisia now also Jordan, Yemen, Morocco, Libya. The application needs to be handed in by the German university or research institute.

The Transformation Partnership consists of the following Program Line(s):

Program Line 2 "Short-term Cooperation with Universities in Egypt and Tunisia”

Publication 2012 : German-Arab Transformation Partnership
