Alumni Academy: Further education and international exchanges
Though our offerings for further education, we want to promote international understanding and intercultural exchanges in a meaningful way. These projects are funded by the DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service.
The Alumni Academy's "Die internationale
Zukunftswerkstatt / The future laboratory" is aimed toward international
alumni of the University of Siegen, and is designed to support
them in their personal and professional further education.
In "The Future Laboratory" participants work together in an interdisciplinary composition on projects for sustainable development. The focus here is on education, digitalisation, social and development-related topics.
