The programme "Fellowships for Innovations in Digital University Teaching in Thuringia" has already been announced several times by the Thuringian Ministry of Economics, Science and Digital Society (TMWWDG) in cooperation with the Stifterverband. The projects are intended to create impulses for the development and testing of digitally supported teaching and examination formats or the redesign of modules with the consistent use of digital technologies, as well as to promote the exchange of information on digital university teaching and the dissemination of the results of the respective projects in the sense of best-practice sharing.
For funding from 1 October 2023, up to ten fellowships were again offered in this programme, each endowed with up to 50,000 euros.
The call for applications was aimed at teachers who work at universities that are state-run in the Free State of Thuringia. The duration of the projects is 15 months (01.10.2023 - 31.12.2024).
Applications for a fellowship can only be submitted via the university management. The university-internal application deadline for this was 26 April 2023. The applications were collected and sent to the Stifterverband by the university management by 11 May 2023.
