CIVIS is pleased to launch a second call for activities related to Hub 2: Society, Culture and Heritage.
We welcome proposals for activities relevant to the Hub’s themes. Proposed activities may include courses, summer schools, workshops, semesters, project supervision and research exchanges; they may involve educational projects with students as well as workshops/meetings of academic staff to develop future activities together with partners from CIVIS universities.
While the Hub Council especially encourages proposals for activities that increase student mobility, it also agreed on prioritizing allied programs with a long-term perspective for this Call. In addition, for this Call, activities are prioritized that stem from the field of social sciences (including, among others, sociology, political science, law, psychology, economics) or address corresponding focus areas. In this context, projects with contacts to African partners are a particular focus of attention.
At least one allied multidisciplinary educational program shall be established within the Hub by the end of 2022; initiatives could involve:
Programs at Bachelors, Masters or PhD level in which 3 or more CIVIS partners are co-teachers for the majority of courses. This can be an existing program at a CIVIS partner university with a majority of courses which are modified to include co-teachers from CIVIS partners (A starting point could be, for example, a multilateral M.A. program, that can be built on existing programs between CIVIS partners: Partners are asked to take an inventory of programs to see if they could be expanded to an allied program, and work on modules as building blocks).
This is a semester or “micro-program” (smaller units like courses and modules combined into ‘micro- programmes’ with a certification possibility to offer CIVIS students flexible learning pathways) at Bachelors, Masters or PhD level, in which 3 or more CIVIS partners are co-teachers for several courses. This can be an existing semester at a CIVIS partner university that includes several courses which are modified to include co-teachers from CIVIS partners.
These are individual courses or packages of courses which a student can use as part of her/his education at Bachelors, Masters or PhD level in which 3 or more CIVIS partners are co-teachers. These can be existing courses at a CIVIS partner which are modified to include co-teachers from CIVIS partners.
We welcome proposals based on two types of initiatives:
Activities which are “ready to go” (e. g. allied teaching projects within the current academic year 2021–22)* that comply with the eligibility criteria below. For these activities CIVIS offers branding, networks and support as well as student and staff mobilities.
Activities at the “planning stage” for which planning within the current academic year is needed, especially for long-term educational projects. For these activities CIVIS offers networks and support as well as staff mobilities enabling members to meet to exchange ideas and work together on the implementation of allied/joint teaching projects.
* Please Note: CIVIS financial support is available until August 2022. However, long-term visions for a second funding phase are encouraged.
