CAPiG 2023


It is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd Conference of African PhDs in Germany (CAPiG), which will take place from September 8 to September 9, 2023, in Hamburg, Germany.

As a foremost gathering of African Scholars in Germany, CAPiG’s objectives are to facilitate excellence in doctoral study through mentorship, information & resource sharing, provide space for networking, & intellectual exchange among African Scholars in academia and non-academic field, and drive knowledge & technology transfer to Africa through collaboration between German and African institutions.

Following the successes achieved at the previous editions of the conference, this year’s conference will be held as a hybrid event -with an online component completing the face-to-face meeting in Hamburg, Germany. 

At CAPiG2023, we look forward to an exciting opportunity to exchange knowledge, share ideas, gain new insights and explore possibilities available for African Scholars to serve as critical bridge for African development. To do so, CAPiG2023 will offer a series of workshops and talks.

CAPiG2023 also offers the opportunity for Ph.D. students and early career researchers to learn, connect and present their ongoing research and receive essential feedback from experienced colleagues with expertise in their field of study. Therefore, we invite contributions (paper & poster presentations) from an interdisciplinary perspective that will empower and shape the mindset of the conference participants.

Speakers at the intellectually-stimulating CAPiG2023 are carefully selected experts and specialists both in the industry and academia.

Conference registration will be open until August 31, 2023.

We look forward to welcoming you to CAPiG2023 to share exciting ideas and to meet new & old friends in the boisterous city of Hamburg.

On behalf of the organizing committee.
