In the first year of membership, the activities focus on the development and implementation of a project. The interdisciplinary-oriented topics will be proposed by the scholarship holders autonomously. The team members contribute their personal skills to the project work and strive to broaden these skills continuously. The project groups are required to develop solutions independently. They can benefit from professional and personal assistance provided by the mentors (active or retired professors) and the tutors.
The one-year projects have a high practical relevance. The group members contribute their individual expertise and strive to broaden their experience by means of workshops and seminars. They acquire interdisciplinary skills and strengthen their "soft skills".
