Short Research Stays

Starting 2024, the Cooperation Project with the GUC offers funded short-term research stays for researchers from all fields. This exchange takes place both ways: Researchers from all Higher Education Institutions in Germany are invited to spend up to two months in Cairo in order to participate in selected research projects situated at the GUC. At the same time, researchers at the GUC are given the opportunity to spend a similar duration at a German partner institution.
This instrument is intended to highlight the opportunities that researchers have for academic cooperation with the participating partner universities. In addition to intercultural aspects, they also receive important impulses for building and expanding their professional network and familiarise themselves with research structures in a foreign country.

Duration: 2 weeks up to 2 months in the period between June - August

Call: The call for applications is published in March each year, here on this website

The application documents consist of:
  • CV
  • passport copy
  • letter of motivation
  • invitation from a professor stating the supervision of the research project
  • for german applicants: Confirmation of supervision from the GUC indicating the GUC research group where the master thesis topic is located (preferably in a BMBF-funded research cooperation)
  • Two letters of reference
  • Copy of the master's degree certificate
  • DAAD application form
  • Completed and signed evaluation form
