The one-hour meeting served to get to know each other and exchange ideas. The Kenyan government wants more intensive cooperation with Germany and would like to expand university relations.
The DAAD offers scholarship programs and individual funding opportunities for Kenyans to Germany, and within Africa, there are numerous university co-operations between German and Kenyan universities. An extensive network of active alumni, organized in associations, supports the initiation of new partnerships.
At the meeting, it was agreed that the Ministry would give more support to the DAAD funding programmes in publicizing it and activating its social networks for tenders. The team from the University Education Directorate will soon be visiting the DAAD regional office in Nairobi to exchange information directly with the DAAD programme officers for the various programs and to discuss closer co-operation for marketing.
