DIES National Multiplication Trainings (NMT) is one of the training courses under the DIES programme with the aim to strengthen DIES alumni in their roles as multipliers in the field of higher education management and to promote the sustainability of DIES trainings. It is jointly initiated by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ).

Under the DIES NMT programme, DIES alumni are encouraged to submit joint training proposals on topics in higher education management such as

  • Faculty Management
  • Project Management, Finance Management and Human Resource Management
  • Research Management with focus on "Proposal Writing"
  • Quality Assurance including Curriculum Development and/or
  • Internationalisation

The selected DIES alumni groups will implement the trainings in their home country or the region. The target group of their trainings are higher education managers or academics who have not yet taken part in a DIES training.

DIES NMT programme is centrally coordinated by the Centre for Quality Development (ZfQ), University of Potsdam. Any questions related to the programme can be addressed to nmt@uni-potsdam.de.
