Multipliers Alumniportal Deutschland

The Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) was established on 1 January 2011. It brings together under one roof the long-standing expertise of the German Development Service (DED), the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and InWEnt – Capacity Building International, Germany. As a federally owned enterprise, it supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. We are also engaged in international education work around the globe.

GIZ operates in many fields, including economic development and employment; governance and democracy; security, reconstruction, peace building and civil conflict transformation; food security, health and basic education; and environmental protection, resource conservation and climate change mitigation.

Alumniportal Deutschland is a joint project of five organisations in the field of international cooperation under the leadership of the GIZ: the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation, Center for International Development and Migration (CIM), and the Goethe-Institut. Presently 15 additional “strategic partners” are supporting this joint venture with their worldwide structures and offers for Alumni. The portal is financed by the Federal Ministry of Economic Development and Cooperation. It is a website for „Germany-alumni“, i.e. people from all over the world who have studied, researched, worked or completed a course of advanced training in Germany. The Alumniportal supports their efforts to secure, expand and apply the skills and qualifications they have obtained. It also promotes the establishment of international networks among interesting protagonists from the fields of economy, society, culture, science and research.
