The German Academic International Network (GAIN) is the network of German scientists and researchers of all disciplines, working at leading research institutions in the United States and Canada. GAIN helps its members maintain and build their international networks and facilitates transatlantic mobility and cooperation.

A monthly newsletter and a comprehensive website inform about career and funding opportunities and recent developments in science policy in Germany.

At events and meetings GAIN members meet experts for German science, politics, and industry. The annual meeting in the U.S. attracts over 300 researchers and a very large number of representatives from all areas of the German research landscape. A talent fair with more than 60 exhibitors completes the conference.

Learn more about GAIN and how it can help you and your career by visiting the GAIN website.


GAIN is a joint initiative of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the German Research Foundation (DFG) and supported by the Federal Ministry of Research and Education. All major German research and funding organizations are associated partners or collaborators.
