Deutsch-Chinesische Alumnifachnetzwerke (DCHAN)

Basic facts about the network

The DCHAN-Community (German-Chinese-Alumni-Network-Community) offers a one-stop networking platform for anyone who is keen on sharing and developing their China-related expertise in the following fields:
    •    Entrepreneurship
    •    Humanities and Social Sciences
    •    Logistics
    •    Mechanical Engineering
    •    Neurosciences
    •    Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy
    •    Urbanisation and Urban Development

Apart from participating and profiting from peer-led knowledge exchange, you will contribute to a dynamic network of expert alumni and their partners in Germany and China. The network reaches out to anyone who possesses the expertise or contacts to drive the discussion forward, be it from the area of academia, research, politics, industry or any other area.
Students and academics who have lived in China and, in some cases, established strong links with Chinese partners over many years, are bound to possess valuable expertise. The aim is to identify and harness the experiences and knowledge of these students and academics in a systematic and sustained way in order to allow both, Germany and China, do develop their full innovative potential and lay the ground for a lasting cooperation in research and innovation.
