Deutschlandjahr USA 2019: The Year of German-American Friendship


In 2019, Germany will be celebrating a year of German-American friendship knowing that the United States and Germany are Wunderbar Together ― stronger as friends and partners.

The Year of German-American Friendship (“Deutschlandjahr USA”) is a comprehensive and collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and with support from the Federation of German Industries (BDI). The aim of "Deutschlandjahr USA" is to showcase how closely our countries are linked through deep historical ties, shared values, and bold visions for the future.

UAS7 participates in this initiative with two projects:

Skills and Employability Made in Germany

Under the headline "Employability (made) in Germany," the larger project aims to showcase Germany as one of the world’s leading country in the fields of university-industry collaborations, dual-study programs, apprenticeships, and educational concepts of applied teaching and research.

Deutschland Ambassadors Initiative

Building a "Transatlantic Alumni Bridge" is the aim of the second project. A total of 14 German universities, including the seven UAS7 members will bring together their alumni, located across the United States, to build a strong network of "Germany Ambassadors".
