On 14 March 2023, Heiko Schmidt, Head of the Department for Scholarship Programs in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and South Caucasus at the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), visited the OSCE Academy to discuss the continuation of cooperation between the DAAD and the OSCE Academy in Bishkek.
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has funded a Visiting Professorship at the OSCE Academy since 2009. Until 2017 the Visiting Professor was part-time based at the OSCE Academy and part-time based at American University of Central Asia. Since 2018 a newly formed Visiting Professorship is fully based at the OSCE Academy. In 2020 a new position of a DAAD Language Assistant was established at the Academy, to support the German-language instruction at our institute.
Currently, the OSCE Academy is honored to host Prof. Dr. Anja Mihr, DAAD long-term Associate Professor (LZD) at the OSCE Academy.
