DigIn.Net aims at supporting of creation innovation ideas in the fields of electrical engineering and information technologies, born by young scientists of Ukraine and bringing them to implementation on the infrastructrure of the Anhalt University Each student who has passed 3 stages of the competition has the opportunity to receive a financial support  from the DigIn.Net project to study at the German University of Anhalt. Also an active participation of German local businesses in the process of bringing ideas to implementation is involved.

Novel ways of internationalization and digitalization under the conditions of limited mobility become crucial in the recent years. For this DigIn.Net is supporting Ukrainian Universities and their teachers in learning to use digital tools in teaching as well in the research collaboration.

The DigIn.Net project provides an infrastructure for the effective use of modern ICT tools to increase the foster innovation potentials at the technical universities of Ukraine together with the expert groups in Germany and applies this infrastructure to create a transnational network of scientists working on innovative ideas. In 2019-2021, the German-Ukrainian Center for Digital Innovation (DUDIZ), based on an online cooperation platform, has been established and used by young researchers as a hub for innovation exchange. The successful implementation of the DigIn.Net project demonstrates how digitalization tools can be used to deepen the collaboration between the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences and its Ukrainian higher education partners and contribute to the internationalization of Ukrainian higher education institutions in order to facilitate the use of digital tools for promotion of the innovation processes.

The activities of Digin.net have significantly contributed to the sustainable modernization of research and teaching at the universities. More than 200 master classes, seminars, online meetings, trainings and individual coaching sessions were held. In order to increase the level of digital literacy, a number of distance learning courses have been prepared and conducted at partner universities. A new course on modern operating systems has been developed. The Zoom remote collaboration platform was used, and new platforms such as Codetantra were tested and applied in conferences with up to 50 participants. During 2019-2021, 10 scientists from Ukrainian universities participated in research internships with the help of DUDIZ. The project funded the participation of Ukrainian scientists in the International Conference “Applied Innovations in IT 2020 and 2021” and topical workshops.

Project involves:

  • Center for digital innovation (DUDIZ)
  • Opportunity to study at the university of Anhalt in Germany
  • Scholarship program ”DIGITAL FUTURE”: prerequisites for participation and composition of the selection committee
  • Workshop “Digital Future” at HSA
