Calls for Proposals & Competitions

Innovative teaching formats, new didactic concepts or approaches to support students' academic success: Here you will find current calls for entries and competitions in which TUM teaching staff can participate with their ideas for studies and teaching.

The Stifterverband and the Klaus Tschira Foundation, in cooperation with ZEIT Verlag, are launching the sixth “One University – One Book” initiative:

All universities in Germany are invited to determine a book that will be the focus of talks, debates and other activities across the university for one semester. The ten best ideas and activities will be honored by the Stifterverband and the Klaus Tschira Foundation. The funding amount per concept is €10,000.

All members and affiliates of a university can submit an application. Applications must be submitted via theuniversity board of executive directors. Only one application per university can be submitted.

The universities are requested to send the application documents to the Stifterverband by January 21, 2022.

Details on funding as well as information on the award-winning projects of the last rounds can be found at (German).

In view of the immense destruction of natural resources and the great disparities between industrialized and developing countries, sustainability is one of the most important goals of our time. The global challenges for ecological, social and economic systems are more present today than ever before. Sustainability should not be seen solely as an environmental or development problem. Rather, it has become a question of economic, political, cultural, technical, ecological and, not least, moral development and shaping of society.

These problems will be addressed by the 16th Annual Engineering Education Conference, which will be hosted in hybrid form by the University of Technology under the title “Engineering Education for Sustainable Development” from May 12 – 14, 2022.

Here you can find the invitation of the Ingenieurpädagogische Wissenschaftsgesellschaft (PDF, 252 KB) (German).

A template for abstract submission can be found here (DOCX, 24 KB) (German).

The deadline for abstract submission is 28.02.2022.

Registration for participation in the conference is open until 02.05.2022.
