Since 2012 we have the Qualitätspakt Lehre project Pro-MINT-us. Project leader is Marco Winzker from the IVC. Now on 6th November 2015 he received the positive feedback about his application for the second round of financing, which applied for 5.79 Mio Euro. From 2017 on the project is funded until 2020.
The project addresses students in the study entry phase. For the IVC means that project based learning in Einsteiger-Projekten and Starterprojekten will continue to be supported. Thus students will learn early in their studies about practical aspects of their field and have an insight in current research topics. Furthermore the project supports scientific writing, so that students have a solid foundation for their own research interests.
