Im Januar 2018 startet die “FAU Digital Tech Academy”, ein Projekt zur fakultätsübergreifenden Förderung und Sichtbarmachung von Innovationen und Unternehmertum an der FAU. Daneben gibt es, zum einen, die “Digital Tech Inspire” Formate für Professoren/innen, Wissenschaftler/innen und Studierende, die Innovation und Unternehmertum an den Schnittstellen der Disziplinen fördern möchten. Zum anderen gibt es das „Digital Tech Fellows” Programm – ein einjähriges englischsprachiges extra-curriculares Qualifizierungsprogramm für alle Studierenden der FAU die sich für die Themen Digitalisierung, Technologie, Innovation und Unternehmertum interessieren:

The “Digital Tech Fellows” is FAU’s new program open only to outstanding digital talents from all FAU degree programs and faculties! We give you all you need to follow your heart and passion for digitization, entrepreneurship and innovation. Work in interdisciplinary teams, get in touch with international expert coaches and mentors, and develop your own pristine and validated business model. Within one year, you will learn the newest state-of-the-art innovation methods and work in a small team on your entrepreneurial challenge. Choose either your own start-up idea or one of the highly enticing projects from our company partners. You’ll work with 24 other handpicked talents from FAU as well as our international expert coaches and mentors – a unique chance to widen your professional network globally. That’s also why we’ll have a sports track with yoga and sailing provided by professional athletes – there is no place you can’t learn something for your project! All these skills and networks we provide will distinguish you significantly from other founders and entrepreneurs in your later work-life. And at the end of that one year, you´ll have developed your own pristine and validated business model empowering you to enter your chosen market.

Besides, some participants will get a highly exclusive grant to visit one of the top universities worldwide to work on the international perspective of his or her project.
