InWEnt - Qualified to Shape the Future
InWEnt - Capacity Building International, Germany, is a non-profit organisation with worldwide operations dedicated to human resource development, advanced training and dialogue.
InWEnt works together with people in key positions, assisting them in shaping change processes in their own countries. Our capacity building programmes are directed at experts and executives from politics, administration, the business community, and civil society. InWEnt qualifies people who pass on their knowledge, thereby working towards long-term, structural change.
As an organisation of international cooperation, InWEnt is commissioned by the German federal government, the German business sector, and the German Länder or federal states and makes an important contribution to an equitable and sustainable development. 60 percent of all programmes are implemented at the request of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). In addition InWEnt conducts programmes for other German federal ministries. InWEnt is also working in cooperation with German companies in public private partnership projects.
On an international level, InWEnt works together with the European Union, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organisation, and the United Nations.
The programmes for people from developing, transition and industrialised countries are tailored to meet the specific needs of our partners. InWEnt offers practice-oriented advanced education and training, dialogue sessions, and e-Learning courses through our own internet platform Global Campus 21®. After the training programmes, the participants continue their dialogue with each other and with InWEnt via active alumni networks.
InWEnt provides support for the activities of the German business sector in developing and transition countries. InWEnt is increasingly focusing on the successful model of public private partnerships (PPP) that can be designed to incorporate economic, social, and environmental goals.
InWEnt also prepares experts from the field of international cooperation for their time abroad. By offering exchange programmes and arranging scholarship programmes, InWEnt thus provides young Germans with the opportunity to gain professional experience abroad.
