AG Internationals

The “Science Network Potsdam Welcome Region” has been in existence since 2015. Numerous actors have come together to warmly welcome international students, scientists and scholars, hereinafter referred to as “Internationals”, to provide them with support during their stay and to recommend the cosmopolitan city of Potsdam to them.

The network is supported by the Office for Equal Opportunities and Diversity of the State Capital of Potsdam – in accordance with the integration concept of the State Capital of Potsdam.

Since 2017, the working group “International Living and Encountering” has existed within the network. It developed the questionnaire and realized it together with the Statistics and Elections Department of the state capital Potsdam.

At the end of 2019 a survey on the living situation of Internationals was conducted in Potsdam. The results of the study are now publicly available here.
