Present cooperations

GERMAN ACADEMIC INTERNATIONAL NETWORK (GAIN)

The German Academic International Network (GAIN), based in New York, supports German academics in North America who want to find out about opportunities to continue their careers in Germany and Europe. In addition to information and regional activities, the network organizes the largest conference for German academics abroad each year. The GAIN annual conference is held alternately on the west and east coasts of the USA. Well-known actors, institutions and universities from the German academic landscape are represented here. Scientists have the opportunity to learn about return opportunities and make valuable contacts during lectures, workshops and at booths.
Dual career support plays an important role for many potential returnees. Therefore, DCND has been represented with a booth as well as a workshop at the GAIN conference since 2011. Its participation is sponsored by the GAIN network.
