Established in 2004, the Information Centre in Rome provides information and advice on study and research opportunities in Germany, the German university system and DAAD funding programmes for students and researchers based in Italy. Thanks to a network of local contacts and through its website and newsletter, the Information Centre Rome does marketing for the German universities, organises informative sessions at Italian schools and universities and participates in education fairs. It also mantains contact with the network of DAAD Alumni in Italy and organises large Alumni meetings, the latest of which took place in Rome in September 2015.
