About the project

In the "HAW.International" funding line of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Trier University of Applied Sciences was able to convince with four project applications and gain further impetus for internationalization. The "Trier University of Applied Sciences International: Graduate International Research Opportunities (GIRO)" project, which will receive funding of almost 500,000 euros between 2024 and 2025, is pursuing the internationalization of doctoral structures with a strong network of university and practice partners in Germany and abroad.

OUR PROJECT OBJECTIVES FOCUS ON
