The research strength of the OTH Regensburg is to be expanded by an EU research strategy. This will increase the visibility of the university at EU level and EU funding volumes. At the same time, the role as a research partner is being expanded.

Initial situation

OTH Regensburg has been systematically expanding its internationalization activities for several years, as well as its research activities at national and international level. At present, there are currently 203 partnerships with foreign universities worldwide, of which 126 are partnerships with universities in the EU, which are also used for the initiation and implementation of international research activities.

Currently running EU projects with the participation of OTH Regensburg
(1 H2020 / 4 ERDF projects: € 1.7 million); already completed: 3 FP7 and 2 ERDF projects (€ 4.3 million funding); Application phase: 25 H2020 and one ERDF project.
Projects at EU level are becoming increasingly important. For this reason, EU projects of the research quorum at the OTH Regensburg have recently been accompanied by an EU research officer at the IAFW.
Tasks are in particular the support with research application and contract design as well as the administrative handling, the controlling of research projects and the strategic further development of the research activities also in connection with the OTH Amberg-Weiden and the IHK Oberpfalz-Kelheim.

Objective

The research strength of OTH Regensburg in the European is growing. This will be done by implementing an EU research strategy capable of strengthening regional needs through structural actions.

These are:

Focusing on established research topics such as Safety/Security, Robotics and Biomedical Engineering interfacing with the "Societal Challenges" of H2020.

Intensify EU research collaborations with strategic partner institutions and companies to develop competencies for all partners.

Bundling of EU research activities within OTH Regensburg and assigning a clear responsibility to an integrating function for international research management and research researcher support Strategic EU partnerships.

The implementation of these measures will increase the visibility of OTH Regensburg at EU level and thus the volume of funding for EU projects. At the same time, the role of OTH Regensburg as a competence provider and research partner for corporate partners will be expanded.

Creation of an additional post at the IAFW as EU Research Officer (initiation and execution of EU projects)

Further education as a certified EU researcher at the EU office of the BMBF (from winter semester 2017)

One-week workshop and exchange of experiences, in particular on H2020 at Turku University of Applied Sciences, Finland, on "Sharing Excellence Week for administrative staff", with the department "Research, Development and Innovation Services"

Participation in the "UAS4EUROPE conference 'Universities of Applied Sciences: Maximizing Success in Horizon 2020 and Beyond - Learn! Network! Lobby!'"

Representation of the university in the network of EU research officers at Bavarian universities of applied sciences (BayEU).


Planned measures:

Focusing on established research topics such as Safety/Security, Robotics and Biomedical Engineering interfacing with the "Societal Challenges" of H2020.

Intensify EU research collaborations with strategic partner institutions and companies to develop competencies for all partners.

Bundling of EU research activities within OTH Regensburg and assigning a clear responsibility to an integrating function for international research management and researcher support for Strategic EU partnerships.
