Call for applications: Travel to Jordan with NEXSTER and participate in a Student Challenge to develop your sustainable business idea!

When: 13-19 October 2024
Where: Al-Balqá University of Applied Sciences (Salt, Jordan)
Who: Students with an interest in sustainable business idea development

NEXSTER and HsH invite applications for students interested in an exchange program with Al Balqá Applied University in Salt, Jordan. The program is part of the DAAD „Ta’ziz Partnership Program“ aimed at strengthening cooperation between academic partners in Germany and the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa).

In December 2023, NEXSTER welcomed a delegation of researchers and students from the Entrepreneurshipcenter of Al-Balqa University (BAU). The visit was part of the “Ta’ziz Partnership Program”, funded by the German Academic Exchange Service. During the visit, plans were already made for further strengthening the ties between the two institutions; namely a mutual visit in fall and winter of 2024.

Provided successful funding*, a team from HsH/NEXSTER will travel to Jordan in October and the Jordanian partners will come to Germany in December and, amongst others, take part in the NEXSTVENTURE Startup-Safari.

During the visit by the German delegation to Jordan, mixed student teams will compete in a student challenge to develop a sustainable business idea. They will receive coaching and guidance from the staff from both institutions as well as introductory and preparatory training such as ideation workshops and introduction to Design Thinking.

The winning teams will go on to develop their idea further in online sessions and with participation in the NEXSTVENTURE Startup-Safari in Hannover 5 – 7 December 2024.

Application deadline: 22 July 2024 23:59h (CEST)
