Comenius call teaching and senior fellows

The 2020 call for the Comenius education grants is out! Comenius funds teaching innovation projects in higher education and enable professionals in higher education to implement their ideas in practice. It focuses on excellence in education, and is intended to stimulate education careers.

You are invited to apply for the teaching and senior fellowships. If interested in the senior ones, please contact Joost Dijkstra and/or Merle Achten.

About the Comenius programme
Each year, NRO (Netherlands Initiative for Education Research) launches a call for proposals for:

  • Teacher grants – €50,000, one-year project, small-scale innovation;
  • Senior grants – €100,000, two-year project in a large programme, faculty or substantial department of a higher education institution;
  • Leadership grants* – €500,000, three-year project, innovation in one or more faculties or a complete institution. NB: UM is not allowed to apply for a leadership grant in 2020 since it was honored a leadership grant for the project ‘Global Citizenship Education’ in 2019.
