In September 2021, the University of Rouen Normandy (URN) applied for regional funding in order to pursue its engagement in the INGENIUM interuniversity transnational alliance and strengthen its cooperation with the other nine European partner universities participating. A dedicated project team was appointed and since then has been working in coordination with the INGENIUM project team of Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, which has been in place since early 2021.
The URN’s INGENIUM instructional designer provides didactic, methodological and technical support to academic staff that is working on developing digital teaching modules and cross-national teaching offers, whereas the INGENIUM project manager assures project planning, monitoring and reporting. Moreover, promotional videos of the INGENIUM alliance will be created to disseminate information on all partner universities.
Together with its INGENIUM partners, URN will participate actively in the alliance’s steering committee meetings, where joint reflection and decision-making take place to ensure progress towards the realisation of common objectives.
Funded by the Regional Council of Normandy for 2021-2022 with EUR 180,000, the University of Rouen Normandy will also receive national funds for 2022-2023 for further implementation of the activities of the INGENIUM alliance.
