    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.
