Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) commissions GIZ to implement international projects. For example, GIZ is providing support for African research networks in the health sector. 

GIZ works closely with BMBF to exchange expertise and information on a wide range of subjects, ranging from education for sustainable development, via climate change and sustainability, to vocational education. On behalf of BMBF and in close cooperation with the German Aerospace Center (DLR), GIZ is implementing the project Research Networks for Health Innovations in Sub-Saharan Africa with African and German research institutions.

GIZ brings its country-specific knowledge and its ability to tap into international networks to bear in many different forums and working groups and in country meetings. It is thus playing a role in realising the German Government’s Strategy for the Internationalization of Education, Science and Research.
