About ADAN e.V.


The Afro-German Academic Network (ADAN e.V.) is a non-profit association that offers a platform for exchange for Afro-Germans, Africans and students interested in Africa as well as professionals. The association, headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, was founded in 2014. Across Germany, Austria and Switzerland more than 450 members in ten cities are part of ADAN.

With its work, the network makes diversity and role models visible for young generations in German society, makes an important contribution to Africa’ development and conveys a differentiated image of the continent. With various events and formats, ADAN strengthens its members in their personal and professional development and contributes sustainably to the reduction of structural disadvantages of Black People of Colour (BPoC) in Germany and Europe.
