From September 2020 until the end of 2021, three international digital collaboration projects at Paderborn University are being funded by the DAAD’s new funding programme IVAC (International Virtual Academic Collaboration).

The programme’s main objectives are the integration of digital collaboration formats in teaching and learning, the design of new mobility patterns (virtual/blended mobility) and the improvement of digital and intercultural competencies.



The "DigiChemLab" aims at developing a virtual learning platform for chemical-technical education by means of Virtual Reality technology. It thus a complementary offer for students to prepare e.g. for internships in chemical laboratories.
