10 Years and Still Running!

GAMP Alumni Event in Berlin

Since 10 years, the German Government has been funding the implementation of five German-Arab Master’s Programmes (GAMP) in the framework of a technical assistance project supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The ultimate goal has been to foster international cooperation between the Arab world and Germany through capacity development for young professionals in key sectors such as water, energy, economics, urban development and education.
This unique approach comprises, besides technical knowledge, a strong focus on management, project planning and interdisciplinarity in an intercultural setting.  
While the project is soon coming to an end, the five Master’s Programmes will continue – and further enhance their most remarkable success:

  • More than 400 graduates, many of them working

    • in the private sector (38%)
    • in the public sector (21%)
    • in international cooperation (18%)

  • 62% of the graduates work in the MENA region, while 32% of those not working in the MENA region have a strong professional connection to the MENA region
  • More than 600 students since the beginning, meanwhile from 47 countries worldwide
  • 11 universities cooperating in tandem partnership (6 Arab and 5 German universities)

On November 2-3, 2017, we will celebrate this success in a conference “GAMP – 10 Years Anniversary” in Berlin, together with the GAMP alumni and university representatives.
During these two days, we will meet in Berlin to hold a small but inspiring GAMP conference.

Event Program

The conference will consist of two parts:

While the first part will primarily focus on GAMP alumni and GAMP universities, the second part will spotlight results and lessons learnt of the GAMP.
