Leibniz Universität Hannover, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) are jointly organising the DIES Training Course
MANAGEMENT OF INTERNATIONALISATION
in cooperation with Universidad de Guanajuato – UG (Guanajuato, México), Manipal University – MU (Manipal, India), and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology – JKUAT (Nairobi, Kenya). The training course is part of the DIES programme (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies), which has been jointly coordinated by the DAAD and the HRK (German Rectors’ Conference) since 2001. The key objective of the training course is to qualify university staff (either International Office staff or higher education managers responsible for coordinating international activities) from selected countries of Africa, Latin America, and Asia, to manage processes and tasks of internationalisation in the area of higher education. The programme will enable the participants to build up improved and more effective structures of internationalisation at their home universities. The programme is neither aimed to HEI with an already very developed stage of internationalisation, nor aims mainly to provide knowledge for proposal writing for third party funding.
