Imperial and Technische Universität München fund aids education innovation

One of many strands of Imperial College London and Technical University of Munich's strategic partnership in education, research and innovation, the education seed fund aims to encourage staff and students at each institution to co-develop new applications for digital technologies. The objective is to fund project teams that are ready to develop innovative, inclusive and impactful online experiential learning opportunities in partnership with our students. Each individual project will be led by both an Imperial and a TUM supervisor and students from each institution.

The fund, which closed for entries in September 2020, invited applications which will build on relationships fostered between the TUM-Imperial community during visits to each institution in 2019. Successful education projects will strengthen these networks and improve collaboration.

TUM and the College were particularly interested in hearing from project teams focussing on student entrepreneurship, AR or VR, multidisciplinary approaches to global challenges, and online delivery of practical labs/field trips.The successful projects span all Faculties across the College, and a range of disciplines. Two teams discuss their future plans now that they have secured funds for their proposals.
