Welcome to Germany!
In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science, research and development. This makes Germany one of the most popular countries in which to study, as well as a site for state-of-the art research and patent development. With its high quality of life, good infrastructure and central location in Europe, Germany is one of the world's most attractive bases for business. Its beautiful urban and rural landscapes, combining age-old traditions and experimental modern culture, make a trip to Germany a unique experience. Germany has something for everyone, so why not pay us a visit?

Keep in touch with alumni from Germany!
Are you a foreign scholar who has studied, taught or done research in Germany? If so, you are part of an extensive international network that you could use to keep in touch with friends and colleagues and to hone your professional skills.
To help you make the most of this network, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Germany's largest organization for the promotion of academic exchange, has set up a website to help you make and maintain contacts with other "Germany alumni".
Germany is on the threshold of a fourth industrial revolution. The Internet of Things is set to supersede traditional manufacturing processes.
