DAAD Science Tour
"Modelling the Future Understanding Global Challenges through Computer-Based Modelling and Simulation”

30 November - 6 December, 2014

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) invites foreign researchers and administrators from universities and research institutes to participate in a tour of cutting-edge research facilities in northern Germany which specialize in the field of modelling future scenarios. The tour will cover a range of interdisciplinary topics related to the use of modelling techniques.

The tour will present cutting-edge research activities in the field of computer-based modelling and simulation at facilities in northern Germany. Visits to universities and research institutes in the cities of Hamburg, Kiel, Braunschweig, Rostock, the island Riems and Potsdam are planned. The tour will end in Berlin. In order to provide fertile ground for new joint projects, the program will focus on current issues regarding maritime sciences, economics, climate change and epidemiology. Comprehensive information on funding opportunities for cooperation in education and research will also be provided.

Applicants typically have a strong research background and an equally strong interest in international cooperation. As experienced scientists, their research profile matches the topic of the science tour. They must have held a PhD/doctorate for at least two years and be affiliated with a non-German university/research institute. Research administrators in universities or research institutes, policy-makers in national agencies or other experts in the fields of science and higher education are also welcome to apply. All applicants should be in a position to initiate and manage major projects in cutting-edge research or educational cooperation. German language skills are not necessary since the program will be conducted in English.
