About us

Germany is home to some of the world’s best researchers - exceptional people pushing the boundaries of what we thought possible. Every year, country wide, more money is invested here in research and development than in any other European country. "Research in Germany - Land of Ideas" is an initiative by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and serves to promote German educational and research institutes across the world.

The “Research in Germany” portal is an information platform and contact point for all looking to find out more about Germany's research landscape and its latest research achievements. One key goal of the portal is to provide an overview of the research and funding opportunities in Germany. It also delivers the latest science and research news from Germany and upcoming events. Additionally, practical information supports foreign scientists and researchers in their decision to collaborate with German research organisations or to complete a research stay in Germany. Editorial responsibility for the portal lies with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
