2) Application for the Special Project Fund (SPF) 2016 starts soon

The General Secretariat sent out the SPF guidelines and application form for the 2016 round to all AC21 members in early October.

We look forward to receiving many inspiring applications that will enhance the AC21 research collaboration.



3) AC21 International Forum 2016 to be held in Chemnitz, Germany

The AC21 International Forum (IF) 2016 will be hosted by the Technische Universität Chemnitz from April 30 to May 3, 2016, with the theme "Chains of Innovation for Changing Science and Society".

In addition to the theme-related sessions and workshops, a workshop in which our member institutions' vice-presidents for research will assemble and discuss potential research collaboration between AC21 members is also planned to be organized as part of the IF 2016.

One of the special attributes of the IF 2016 is that the forum is scheduled to be held in the week commemorating the jubilee, as 2016 marks the 180th anniversary of TU Chemnitz which was founded in 1836.



Thank you for your continued support of AC21 and its activities.

If you would like to share news or events with the other members through this Monthly Report, please send them to the AC21 General Secretariat at office@ac21.org.


Warm regards,

AC21 General Secretariat
