Exploratory Teaching Space
The Exploratory Research Space, ETS, was established as part of the Institutional Strategy for Teaching – building on positive experiences in research – in 2009 at RWTH Aachen. ETS' aim is to create a platform for creative idea generation in teaching at RWTH.
Calls are published annually. Submitted proposals are evaluated internally by RWTH and then sent to the ETS selection committee, which is made up of the ETS steering committee, an elected academic staff representative, and a student representative. The selection process is subject to the code of conduct and pre-determined selection criteria.
The funding period lasts up to twelve months. Grants can be used for both material and personnel costs.
