"Teaching & Training" Cooperation Funding

Call for Proposals ( pdf 2021)

With the “Teaching & Training” Cooperation Funding to complement the KoUP program, the university management creates opportunities to fund teaching and further training at partner universities outside the EU and to intensify partnership work. Technical and administrative personnel are thus invited to actively contribute to helping our partnerships thrive. 

“Teaching & Training” Cooperation Funding at a Glance

This funding opportunity with different focus areas that change every year offers support for the realization of activities with Potsdam’s partner universities. The financial resources are made up of the university budget and third-party funding, which are partly subject to funding regulations.

“Teaching & Training” funding is awarded to promote the further development of cooperation with partners of the university. Please refer to the call for proposals for more information.

A committee headed by the Vice President in charge will decide on the approval of applications.

Die deadline for 2021 has passed. The next deadline for proposals will be: January 15, 2022.

Please note:  Proposals for cooperation with HSE Moscow may be submitted at any time. It is also possible to invite guests from HSE Moscow to the  University of Potsdam.
