Research in support of the Quality Pact for Teaching
The funding announcement "Research in support of the Quality Pact for Teaching" ("Begleitforschung zum Qualitätspakt Lehre") was published by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in October 2013. The announcement offers funding for research projects that focus on current issues in higher education studies and teaching and that, in such efforts, integrate programmes and measures developed in the projects of the Federal-Länder programme "Quality Pact for Teaching."
Projects should aim to produce scientifically reliable and usefully implementable findings, and they should support higher education institutions in their efforts to improve their services for students and the quality of their teaching.
The following pages describe the overarching objectives of this BMBF funding line, along with the individual research projects being funded. The project descriptions cover the contents of the projects, provide the applicable framework data and list the pertinent contact persons.
