The German-Syrian Research Association (DSFG) is a non-profit non-governmental organization established in Germany and founded in 2016 by Syrians and Germans of Syrian origin. It was built out of the will, the establishment of a Syrian community for research and science in Germany, as well as the creation of a Syrian lobby within the German Centers for Research and Science. The aim is to support Syrian students and scholars in their studies and work in Germany and, in addition, to obtain the relevant scholarships so that they can continue their scientific career in Germany.
The DSFG also aims to support projects, scientific, technical and other participations, as well as to organize symposia and workshops in and outside Germany. The aim is to make the Syrian community and its cultural background known and to strengthen the aims of the association in order to establish a common scientific and cultural community between Germany and Syria.
