The qualification of unqualified and lateral entrants is a good way to close this gap in a timely manner. ProQ-STEAM investigates how early entry or transition into the teaching profession in science subjects, technology & design and art & design succeeds and how professional identity is formed.

    The Reception of Beethoven and His Music in Nazi-Occupied European Countries 

    Although cultural life in various Nazi-occupied countries manifested distinctive differences in outlook between 1939 and 1945, partially accountable to specific national traditions and their historical and ideological relationship to German music and the political situation, one factor that appears to bind all musical activity in these areas is the consistent presence of the music of Ludwig van Beethoven.

    From STEM to STEAM 

    Building on the experience of the two previous funding periods, in which most partner organisations were already involved, transfer formats in the STEAM area are being developed for the target groups of employees at the knowledge and technology transfer interfaces, researchers, students, graduates and stakeholders in the (creative) economy. The aim here is to build bridges between STEM disciplines and the artistic-creative sector.

    Nexus of Textile and Sound 

    The research project investigates the combination of textile and sound. The aesthetic potential of the textile-sound combination is explored and new possibilities of artistic expression are explored. Textile is an interactive medium and metaphor in its form of presentation and interpretation. Textile is material that uses certain techniques without naming the material or technology itself, similar to architecture. The term sound encompasses the artistic fields of sound art, music, ambient noise, transacoustic fields and silence. Sound is based on a conceptual compositional process in terms of the organisation of sounds, but also has a physical aspect in that the perception of sound is strongly linked to bodily processes such as breath, movement and heart rate.

    Grenzklang is a project based in Tyrol and unique in the entire German-speaking region, which on the one hand offers children of Persian origin an opportunity to promote singing and music-making, while at the same time enabling a connection to their culture and being open to children of all nationalities as well as music of pluralistic cultures. On the other hand, Grenzklang is a practical training programme for future music teachers. This joint intercultural learning envisaged in the project ideally leads to an attitude of all participants, which is the basis for social progress and enables teaching and learning in diversity, equality and democracy. It thus functions as a model for further (music) pedagogical and intercultural offers. Synergy is an essential feature and Grenzklang contributes to strengthening the cultural identity of all participants.

    The Knowledge Transfer Centre West has set itself the goal of sustainably intensifying and professionalising knowledge transfer through joint actions and measures, tapping into exploitation potential, deepening and broadening cooperation with the economy but also with society as a whole, pursuing transdisciplinary and innovative approaches and using possible synergies to achieve these goals. The Kommunikations.Hub draws on the results of the first call for proposals "Awareness and Accompanying Measures" of the first funding period of the STC. In addition to already established measures within the terms "networking", "knowledge and technology transfer", especially the work package "innovation space" offers new projects. The further training offers - "Transfer Hubs" - designed in cooperation with the WTZ Ost offer spaces of opportunity in the thematic fields of "Post-Grad Life" and "Innovation Matters".
