DAAD Workshop - "Fair Play and Equal Chances at Higher Education Institutions. Diverse Perspectives from Germany, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine"
The University of Duisburg-Essen invites applications for a workshop with the goal of developing a set of guidelines on corruption prevention for higher education institutions. The workshop, funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), will take place in Brussels (Belgium) and Essen (Germany) from 09.07.2018 to 18.07.2018.
The workshop will consist of two parts:
I. Visit of European Institutions that set standards in good governance, higher education or research, such as the European Commission (European Anti-Fraud Office and Directorate General for Education and Culture), the European Research Council, and the European Parliament Committee on Education and Culture (Brussels offices).
II. Workshop in Essen, where the participants will process the obtained information in working groups as well as gain additional insight from researchers on corruption in higher education. As a result, the participants will develop recommendations (Code of conduct) for higher education institutions on how to establish a level “playing field” across all phases of higher education.
Good English knowledge is required for all participants. This has to be documented together with the application, e.g. by a certified DAAD language test, writing skills demonstrated in the application form and a Skype interview after the application.
The workshop is dedicated to young scientists and professionals in education from Germany, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. All participants must have a completed Master degree. Applications from all subjects are welcome. We expect that each applicant will participate in the whole workshop. Applicants should not be older than 35 years. Twenty participants will be funded (5 from each country). All expenses (travel, living expenses, and accommodation in a double room) will be paid by the organizers.
The application procedure will be carried out in two steps. First applicants are asked to submit their application until 02.02.2018 (strict deadline) to firstname.lastname@example.org by completing the template file (Download Template Fair Play 2018) together with following documents:
- CV data (max. 1 page)
- Certificate of highest degree (e.g. Master or PhD)
- Statement about the knowledge of English language
- Motivation letter for a presentation in line with the topic of the workshop
All applicants of the first round will be notified on the decision no later than 02.03.2018.
The successful applicants of the first round will then be asked to submit more extensive information and to participate in a Skype interview. The final decision about the participation will be communicated no later than 23.03.2018.
