Research and innovation ‘Made in Germany’ in Silicon Valley

The DAAD has established a new German House of Science and Innovation (DWIH) in San Francisco, extending its network to six locations: Brazil (São Paulo), India (New Delhi), Japan (Tokyo), Russia (Moscow) and the USA (New York, San Francisco). DWIH offers networking opportunities for the expansion of knowledge and technology transfer between German science organisations, universities, and the research-based economy.

With DWIH San Francisco, the network gains direct access to the world-renowned start-up scene of Silicon Valley and the renowned universities of Stanford and Berkeley. To make the best possible use of this access, DWIH San Francisco is building up an extensive network of contacts and making them available to all institutions involved in DWIH. The focus of the San Francisco location is on the transfer of knowledge about scientific spin-offs and start-ups in the pre-foundation phase.
