Returning Experts Programme

Country flag

Run by the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM), the programme supports individuals from developing, emergent and transition countries who live and work in Germany – or have completed education or training there – to return to their home country to use their skills and knowledge. It enables diaspora experts to contribute to development back home by applying their knowledge, experiences and contacts in the right places. The programme aims to promote international migration as a positive factor in development and to encourage the transfer of knowledge through the professional integration of returning experts. Since 2004, the programme has assisted more than 10,000 persons with career planning, returning to their home countries and the search for appropriate positions there. There is also extra financial support for experts returning to a list of 23 countries, including Mongolia.
