The Alumni Network Ukraine-Germany, supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), was initiated by a consortium of 21 Ukrainian and German institutions from academia, politics, society and economy. It addresses Ukrainian alumni of German universities and everyone who is committed to German-Ukrainian cooperation. By establishing a thriving exchange of experience and knowledge, it aims at facilitating scientific, research and professional cooperation and supporting societal and economic development.
- Promoting the professional and interdisciplinary training of Ukrainian alumni (e.g. on project and quality management, digitalisation and legal understanding)
- Promoting the network between Ukrainian alumni and German institutions in science, business and society
- Winning over alumni as multipliers, both with regard to an enhanced Ukrainian-German cooperation and to the development of democratic and market-economic structures
- Increasing the visibility of German universities and scientific institutions in Ukraine and promoting new contacts and cooperation opportunities with Ukrainian institutions and alumni
