Challenge Horizon 2020 – Development and Implentation of a EU-Research strategy at the Univeristy of Applied Sciences Dresden

The HTW Dresden intends within HTWgoesEU an internal strategic transformation with a five-module EU research strategy to systematically increase the successful acquisition of EU research funding.

Initial situation

The possibilities of profiling the university and improving its performance for the innovation region, which grow out of an international research cooperation, are currently far from exhausted. In addition, the sustainable interest of the scientists of the HTWD could not yet be used. A further internationalization of research and the increased use of EU research framework programs for the strategy of the HTW Dresden is necessary. The research-active scientists of the university are highly interested in international cooperation because they value the potential increase in knowledge in cooperation with the best researchers in Europe. In part, without participation in EU research programs, the scope and quality of research will not be sustainable. In order to comply with the requirements of teaching, science, business and politics for a European orientation of research at the HTWD in terms of content and structure, the creation and implementation of a consistent strategy and start-up financing for their implementation is required.
