The TU9 Alliance is making a strong case for STEM - with national and international projects, for different target groups and with renowned partners from science, business and politics.
“Future of Internationalization – Strengthening Excellence, Shaping Strategy”
The two-day event of the TU9 Alliance enables an exclusive exchange in a small circle against the background of the process for the further development of the "Strategie der Wissenschaftsminister/innen von Bund und Ländern für eine Internationalisierung der Hochschulen“. The event is also intended to formulate joint positions and needs of universities with strong research capabilities.
Invited are university administrations of research-strong universities, administrations of their international offices, strategy and research departments, experts of the DAAD and other science organizations, politics and economy.
STEM Study Exploration Week for Students from German Schools Abroad
Every year, the TU9-ING-Woche offers an exclusive insight into engineering and natural science study programs along a socially relevant topic of the future. Laboratory visits, lectures and internships, insights into STEM professions, exchanges with students and, of course, a cultural program have made the STEM Study Exploration Week for students from German schools abroad a success since 2011. It now takes place annually at two TU9 Universities in parallel, and since 2020 the TU9-ING-Woche has also been available digitally.
Think. Create. Innovate.
Think. Create. Innovate. Under this motto, the TU9-DAAD Innovation Week supports international early career researchers on their way from idea to start-up. Introduced by TU9 and DAAD in 2019, the program comprises pitch trainings, one-on-one counselling and advice, networking events and information on funding opportunities. Participants from all over the world will get an exclusive insight into the start-up centers and business incubators of the TU9 Universities and the start-up scene in Germany.
Combined Study and Practice Stays for Engineers from Developing Countries (KOSPIE)
Introduced in 2007, the DAAD KOSPIE program enables Master’s students from selected Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) to travel to Germany for a seven-month research stay at a TU9 University. DAAD awards the students a scholarship allowing them to conduct their research project for their Master’s degree in engineering, mathematics or a natural science discipline.
Cooperation Project on Quality Assurance of Scholarly Journals
The EQUAP2 project (Evaluating the Quality Assurance Process in Scholarly Publishing) is a collaborative project between the TU9 libraries and eight Swiss libraries and associations. It focuses on the journals (closed, hybrid, and open access) of the eleven strongest interdisciplinary scholarly publishers and examines their quality assurance processes as well as their implementation in practice. By means of a broad survey, concrete experiences of authors, reviewers and/or editors will be collected and evaluated. The aim of the project is to provide an empirical basis to formulate recommendations for the design of the open access transformation process.
