Press Tours

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) annually hosts press tours for German and foreign journalists. During visits to renowned research institutions, universities and corporate R&D facilities, the journalists are introduced to the German research landscape. Science and economics journalists of various print, radio and online media are given the opportunity to investigate background information and to share information with experts from science and politics, e.g. as interview partners. The aim of the tours is to present innovative German research and international cooperation projects to the audience invited.
