General Information


The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), with financial support provided by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), supports academic qualification measures for individuals from developing countries who participate in the In-Country / In-Region Programme. Every year, the DAAD awards more than 1,000 BMZ-funded scholarships to junior researchers from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, South East Asia and South Asia to help finance their Master or PhD programmes in their home country or region. The programme aims to enable trained professionals to address and deal with diverse societal, economic and ecological issues in developing countries. A further objective is to sustainably improve the teaching and research conditions in the partner regions and to strengthen their higher education profile.

As an additional offer for scholarship holders of the In-Country / In-Region Programme, the DAAD cooperates with German universities in organising a range of summer schools in Germany. These four-week measures give the students and young researchers an opportunity to take part in a high-class academic training in a selected subject area, meet and exchange with peers from across the world, and make their own, unique experiences of the German society, culture and history.

Target Group
The training programme is directed towards current DAAD In-Country/In-Region scholarship holders (Master and PhD students) in developing countries who have a primary qualification in health sciences, public health, veterinary sciences or a life sciences related field with a human health focus.

Focus of the EARTHS Summer School
It is designed as a 4 week training programme which aims to prepare university students and junior researchers for the tasks of teaching and research in their respective institutions. The focus will lie on scientific research methods, research project development and interactive teaching skills. The facilitators and lecturers will use a mix of teaching methods including interactive lectures, group work, workshops, filmed and non-filmed presentations and plenary discussions during the teaching sessions. The course language will be English throughout.

The ‘Hamburg University of Applied Sciences - Health Sciences Department’ will organise the summer school in cooperation with the ‘Bernhard-Nocht Institute of Tropicial Medicine’. 

Location and Date
The EARTHS summer school will take place for 4 weeks in June 2020 in the beautiful harbour city of Hamburg in northern Germany. Classes will be held at the ‘Hamburg University of Applied Sciences’ – Bergedorf Campus and at the Bernhard-Nocht Institute of Tropicial Medicine in Hamburg.

We are looking forward to your applications for EARTHS 2020.
