BayWISS Verbundkolleg Digitalisierung (BWD)

With BayWISS the Bavarian Ministry of Science and the Arts has created a new platform to enhance collaboration of universities and universities of applied sciences in Bavaria.

The BayWISS Verbundkolleg Digitalisierung (BWD) is one of currently eleven thematically different Joint Academic Partnerships . It has its headquarters at the University of Würzburg and is jointly managed together with the universities of applied sciences THWS Würzburg-Schweinfurt  and OTH Regensburg.

As a first measure, BayWISS is developing a platform for joint doctoral projects between universities and universities of applied sciences in Bavaria. Talented graduates who are qualified and willing to strive for a doctoral degree at any BayWISS member university can join this new forum together with their supervisors.

The BWD will start its work with the following research topics:

  •   Big data/data analytics
