DIES-Training Course: Management of Internationalization 2017/2018

Leibniz Universität Hannover, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK)

The programme will enable the participants to build up improved and more effective structures of internationalisation at their home universities.
