In the lead or in cooperation with key partner organisations, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), helds numerous scientific and policy conferences and workshops every year. Events cover all topics of development policy and bring together researchers and practitioners of development cooperation to discuss and work out common solutions to global problems. In addition, DIE experts give (key) notes at national and international workshops and conferences on a regular base and participate in meetings with ministries and implementing agencies.

By organising and participating in events on current issues of development policy, DIE emphasises its core expertise in policy advice.
