Justus Liebig University
Soil Science and Birki Nutrition Department actively supports the cooperation between Ege University Faculty of Agriculture and Giessen Justus-Liebig University (Germany), which started in 1960 and lasted for more than 50 years. Especially through IAESTE (International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience), student exchange internship has been going on for many years. Thanks to this internship activity, foreign students who come to our country increase their professional knowledge by doing internships with our faculty students, as well as get to know the cultural and natural riches of our country closely. Likewise, our students who go to Germany come back to our country by gaining different experiences. The collaboration with Justus Liebig University has been published as a book in Turkish and German with the title of “The Story of 50 Years of Friendship”. You can find the news about the cooperation in our country and the German press below.
There are students from Benin, Togo, and Cuba in our department having postgraduate education with Türkiye scholarships. These students, who are involved in master and doctorate activities, form cultural and scientific bridges between their countries and our country.
