CGYPP

Czech-German Young Professionals Program

The Czech-German Young Professionals Program (CGYPP), established in 2008, is an international network for young experts, multipliers, movers and shakers from Germany and the Czech Republic. The program interlinks the fields of academia, business, media, politics, public administration and NGO.

 

Each year, 12 young professionals from Germany and the Czech Republic are invited to participate in a series of workshops, and to collaborate on relevant economic, political and social issues.

CGYPP connects people with different professional backgrounds. By exchanging and sharing experiences and perspectives, the participants not only broaden their horizons, improve communication and intercultural skills but also increase their social capital.

 

CGYPP was founded by the Association for International Affairs (AMO) and the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and supported by the Czech-German Future Fund and Robert Bosch Stiftung.

Since 2014, CGYPP has been jointly organized by AMO and the European Academy Berlin (EAB) with the support of the Czech-German Future Fund.
