Johann Gottfried Herder-Program


The Johann Gottfried Herder-Programm supports and facilitates the placement of German emeritus professors at universities abroad.


The sponsored Herder lecturers offer important impulses for networking between their host university and universities in Germany, and for renewing and modernizing the course offerings at the host university. They also spread the German language and academic culture abroad.

The calls are oriented towards emeritus and retired university professors as well as retired managers in business and administration. Funding is provided each semester; extensions are possible.

You can find the program benefits as well as the application requirements and documents on the DAAD homepage.

More detailed information about the individual visiting lectu­rers and application documents can be requested via . The application deadline is March 31, 2017.
