German Humboldt-Network e.V.

The German Humboldt-Network e.V. offers a forum of encounter for the "Humboldt Family" in Germany with the intention

  • to maintain the personal contact of the alumni of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) beyond the scholarship phase and to intensify the exchange with each other
  • to facilitate mutual assistance for the integration and professional orientation of alumni of the AvH in Germany
  • to provide advice for the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation from the perspective of the alumni and to get into dialogue with other Humboldt Associations.
  • to deal with our modern society and its current changes based on the diverse experience with different cultures of our members.

The „Humboldt Family“ embraces

  • all scientists selected by the 'Alexander von Humboldt Foundation' (AvH) - whether they have just received a scholarship or have been (back) in Germany since a long time
  • longtime hosts and members of selection committees, if they have also conducted research abroad.

The German Humboldt-Network e.V. (DHN) is organized in regional groups. By this we ensure that each interested scientist in Germany – being member of the DHN or its guest – is able to participate in our diverse activities with reasonable effort.
