Practice-to-Science grants are aimed at qualified experts with sound practical experience who wish to return to academia as professors at a university of applied sciences or a university of teacher education.
Practice-to-Science grants are awarded in all disciplines taught at universities of applied sciences and universities of teacher education. Their primary aim is to make use-inspired research more competitive. They also allow recently appointed professors at a university of applied sciences or a university of teacher education to develop the academic side of their dual profile combining science and practice.
These time-limited positions offer the opportunity of obtaining higher qualifications or a permanent position.
