We create solutions.

The Project House supports strategy development and implements projects on a range of topics for all of TU Braunschweig. Our goal is to find future-oriented solutions for central challenges in strategic fields of action at TU Braunschweig. These solutions span from the generation of ideas to their implementation.

The Project House works within the framework of its areas of activity at TU Braunschweig-envisioning ourselves as a flexible living lab in the third space between administration and science The topics of (digital) teaching and teaching development are of particular importance to the Project House.

We are currently working in three teams:

Team Innovation in University Development

Strategic change and innovation processes are the foundation of the Innovation in University Development Team’s work. To generate future-oriented solutions, the team’s mission consists of tasks such as the evaluating current trends, generating ideas, citizen participation processes, project-related product development, the acquisition of funds, evaluation, and transfer of innovation.


[hive] Hub for Innovation and Ventures in Education 

The digital transformation of the modern world has permanently changed the university environment both technologically and culturally. The [hive] team engages with these digital developments in various aspects of teaching and learning as well as initiating and participating in various projects on many different levels. The [hive] team generates and implements technological and didactic prototypes as well as concepts for teaching and learning at the TU Braunschweig.   

Team Teaching and Media Education

In close collaboration with teaching staff and students, Team Teaching and Media Education works on improving study programmes and instruction at TU Braunschweig. The team focuses on innovative teaching and developing new teaching methods together with future-oriented concepts and possibilities for learning. The Project House offers a wide selection of different services, ranging from need-based services for teaching staff, institutes, and faculties to courses for students looking for options to fulfil their program’s interdisciplinary module requirements, such as the “Future Skills” module. Additionally, the team supports newly appointed professors through custom services in the Prof. Programme.
