The importance of Alumni for research and innovation, as well as for society as a whole, has been recognised by both, the Chinese and the German decision makers. Germany and China have a 40-year history of excellent academic and research cooperation, with thousands of scholars travelling back and forth. What role can they play for academia and for society? This event is an opportunity to learn from one another. We invite you to reflect on different concepts and aspects of Alumni involvement in China and Germany by looking at your own path and that of your fellow alumni.
ABOUT DEUTSCH-CHINESISCHE ALUMNIFACHNETZWERKE (DCHAN) / SINO-GERMAN ALUMNI EXPERT NETWORKS
DCHAN was launched 18 months ago by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The network is led by seven higher education/research institutions in Germany with a proven record of excellent and longstanding research cooperation and alumni relations with Chinese partners. The aim is to bring together leading researchers/alumni from China and Germany in a number of research fields, currently: Entrepreneurship, Logistics, Urbanisation, Mechanical Engineering, Neurosciences, Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy, Philosophy and further Humanities and Social Sciences with an interest in the notion of Good Life.
Through peer networking and joint events, as well as strategic recruitment of new alumni and stakeholders, the network is designed to build a dynamic platform of leading minds in their areas. In the long term the network aims to establish a sustainable network that will be able to respond to important questions in research and society and initiate new and lasting ways of Sino-German cooperation.
