German Houses of Research and Innovation
The German Houses of Research and Innovation (DWIH) provide a platform for the German research and innovation landscape, showcasing the accomplishments of German science, research, and research-based companies and promoting collaboration with Germany and innovative German organizations. Their goal is to present German scientific and research organizations abroad under the banner of the DWIHs. The German Houses of Research and Innovation are part of the Internationalization Strategy of the German Federal Government and the Federal Foreign Office’s Research and Academic Relations Initiative. The Federal Foreign Office is implementing this project in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and in close collaboration with the Alliance of German Science Organizations, which includes the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), German Council of Science and Humanities (WR), German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, German Rectors' Conference (HRK), German Research Foundation (DFG), Helmholtz Association, Leibniz Association, Max-Planck-Gesellschaft - as well as the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK).
The houses were created to:
- Promote Germany as a research location
- Provide a forum for international dialogue and scientific exchange
- Provide support and services (advising for international researchers; organizing educational events; facilitating collaboration)
Participation is open to all German research organisations and research-based companies that are either already present at the particular location or are interested in establishing a presence there.
