Promoting Young Researchers

ZIAF supports young researchers in various ways. Most prominently, ZIAF organises Fieldschools for students from Germany and Africa, and on behalf of the Volkswagen Foundation manages the Fellowship Program for excellent young African postdocs in the humanities and social sciences.

Further, ZIAF regularly organises interdisciplinary workshops and events on various topics. These topics are selected by popular demand of the ZIAF young researchers’ network. Another important part of these events is the possibility to network with peer colleagues from other disciplines.
