About the ITEASc project
The Novo Nordisk Foundation has awarded a grant of DKK 2 million to the University of Copenhagen, Technical University of Denmark, University of Southern Denmark and Aarhus University, in order to establish and develop a cross-university teaching network — Interdisciplinary Teaching in the Natural & Technical Sciences (ITEASc – prounouced “iteach”).
The networking activities will span a three-year period, complementing the NNF-supported M.Sc.-level courses on experimental and interdisciplinary research.
ITEASc will provide a unique opportunity for teachers and students to share experiences with and improve experiment-based interdisciplinary teaching and learning across the natural and technical sciences.
