Objectives of the IPPAE

The International PhD program in Agricultural Economics, bioeconomy and rural development (IPPAE) is being offered by the Universities of GIESSEN and HOHENHEIM, Germany. The IPPAE (Dr. agr.) is designed as a research based education for qualified candidates from developing countries. The institutions and persons involved, encompass a broad range of expertise and experience in teaching and research in developing countries.


Target group

The IPPAE is exclusively designed to upgrade the academic qualification of young and energetic scholars from the developing world, where expertise with this background is of acute shortage. Since women are mostly under-represented in many career areas of developing countries, applications from female candidates are especially welcome and will be given a higher priority if pre-requisite qualifications are held. Applications are encouraged primarily for people from universities, national/international research centers and institutions for staff development. Nevertheless, applications from master’s degree holders who are already employed in government, INGOs, NGOs and private institutions are also very welcome. Having the aim to pursue a research career after graduation is an advantage.
