Collaboration programme for startups and education
The EdTech working group will launch the first edition of Startup in Residence EdTech this year. This is a unique opportunity for startups and educational institutions to work together on an innovative solution to an educational challenge. The duration of Startup in Residence is approximately six months and is expected to start in October. During the six-month period, startups and institutions will be offered support and additional knowledge and experience to further develop their product or service.

Challenges: from cybersecurity education to efficient assessment tests
Seven universities of applied sciences and universities of applied sciences formulated their challenges in cooperation with the EdTech working group. These ranged from the development of an online environment for information provision regarding the (re)design of blended education to a solution for more efficient assessment of tests for large groups. If the programme is successful and the participants are mutually satisfied, it is possible for them to purchase the product or service.

Join the programme
