Competition Advancement by Education: Open Universities
This competition aims at promoting university concepts which enhance accessibility of academic education for experienced workers, integrate newly gathered knowledge and thus, ensure the long-term supply of qualified workers. Concepts for extra-occupational degree programmes, degree programmes with extended professional experience phases or programmes aimed at lifelong learning can be submitted. The submitted concepts should address people with family commitments, returnees to the job, university drop-outs, unemployed academics or working Bachelor-alumni – and also include persons without the formal qualifications needed for accessing universities. Project administrator is VDI/VDE-IT.
