Season's Greetings & Stay Connected!
Dear Alumni, RAMP members and friends of the DAAD,

Another year has gone by and as everyone is getting ready for the festivities ahead (or simply a well-deserved break), I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude for your continued support of the activities of the DAAD Information Centre in Sydney.

Special thanks goes to:

  • Our Alumni - for supporting the Alumni-Treffen in Melbourne in November and investing their valuable time in staying connected with the DAAD.

  • The German Embassy Canberra, the Consulate General in Sydney and the Honorary Consulates in Brisbane and Perth - for your excellent cooperation, invitations to events and continued support throughout all our activities.

  • The Goethe-Institut Australia - for your great hospitality, cooperation and support.

  • The DAAD head office in Bonn - for continued support and assistance in all matters.

  • My DAAD team in Sydney - for your flexibility, collegiality and hard work throughout the year.

If you would like to stay connected during the holidays and beyond, please find some details below regarding the newly inaugurated Australian German Research Network, as well as an offer from the Goethe-Institut to get discounted tickets for the German Productions at Sydney Festival in January 2019.
Our office is closed from Monday, the 24th of December, and will reopen on Monday, the 7th of January 2019.

Wishing you a merry Christmas and a productive year 2019,

With kind regards from Sydney,
Katharina McGrath

Australian German Research Network
We would like to invite you to join the Australian German Research Network , a joint initiative by the German Embassy in Canberra and the Australian Embassy in Berlin. This online network is currently hosted on the social media platform LinkedIn . The group has over 250 members from academia, government and industry, and we would love for you to join!

What is its purpose?
This group is dedicated to Australian researchers and innovators interested in collaborating with Germany and vice versa. It offers them the opportunity to connect with like-minded colleagues in Germany and Australia, find new collaborators, identify funding opportunities and business partners, and stay informed about all things happening in the bilateral Australian-German research and innovation space. It is open to all disciplines including natural sciences, engineering, humanities, political and social sciences.

Why should you join?
This group will allow you to:
  • promote events among a target network of professionals with expertise in German-Australian research and innovation;
  • share your research news and other information on bilateral opportunities including jobs and funding; and
  • connect with academics, industry, and government representatives who have a common interest in Australian-German linkages.
Also, Australian-German events will be advertised on this site first: it is the quickest way to find out what is happening when and where both in Australia and Germany, and the best way to stay informed. Don’t miss out!

How can you join?
It's easy and free to join.
  1. Set up a LinkedIn profile if you do not yet have one.
  2. Go the group’s site
  3. Click on “Ask to Join”, and the administrator can accept your request.
