Current Funding Projects on Entrepreneurship at SCE and HM
Here you can find funding projects in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation that are currently being carried out at SCE and our HM - Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences. Finished projects and resulting publications can be found under Publications & Reports.
Agora (BMBF, DAAD)
The core of the Agora concept is to innovate and improve application-oriented online teaching with international partners in the context of entrepreneurship by expanding the technical infrastructure and the digital teaching concept. Agora offers the opportunity to use and further expand the network to domestic and foreign partners and to enrich the international and practice-oriented study program with additional digital formats and processes.
In doing so, a virtual 3D HM Entrepreneurship meeting and learning platform for international students, lecturers and practice partners will be established. High-quality topic-related online teaching modules from the areas of health, energy/sustainability and digitalization will be integrated and incorporated into teaching. Last but not least, the cross-national exchange of students and teachers is promoted.
AI+Munich (BMWK, EXIST)
Artificial intelligence has enormous potential to positively shape the economy and society. Used correctly, we can all benefit from artificial intelligence systems. The partners of the Munich model project AI+Munich have developed a joint AI start-up process to further establish Munich as an AI start-up beacon. In the future, they will promote the AI ecosystem in the region, which is embedded in the diverse entrepreneurship activities in Munich as an innovation location.
AI+Munich aims to increase the number of startups in the field of artificial intelligence in the Munich metropolitan region by initiating entrepreneurial projects and scouting existing projects and startups and supporting them on their way to the market. In doing so, it is important to the model project partners to highlight the benefits of AI innovations for society as a whole.
eBridge (BMWK, EXIST Potentials)
As with EXIST III and IV, we were also involved in the EXIST Potentiale initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) with our concept "eBridge - Fostering Responsible Entrepreneurship by Bridging Start-ups and Eco-Systems in Europe and around the Globe".The project is part of the joint project "Munich B2B Co-Creation Hub", the Munich University of Applied Sciences and the two Munich universities Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and Technische Universität München (TUM), which was successful as a joint cooperative application in the field of "International Persuasion". The joint initiative aims to further internationalize Munich's start-up eco-system and harness start-up-initiated innovation and B2B business models for social impact.
To this end, the partners have jointly launched the regionally/internationally integrating Munich Global Impact Sprint (MGIS): About the Munich Global Impact Sprint (MGIS).
SCE and HM also used their international network to drive the fast-growing international entrepreneurship alliance "Start for Future". Start for Future is an ecosystem initiative & community of universities and incubators in which, together with the European Institute of Innovation & Technology, Knowledge and Innovation Communities (EIT KICs), joint international programs for talents and start-ups are carried out and entrepreneurs, talents, start-ups and co-creation partners are matched.

Entrepreneurial Skills (Stifterverband)
The project "Entrepreneurship & Innovation Introduction Days" of HM and SCE is funded by the Stifterverband program "Entrepreneurial Skills". The core of the concept is the sustainable establishment of interdisciplinary and cross-faculty "Entrepreneurship & Innovation Introduction Days" for all first-semester students at HM. The sustainable shaping of our world requires personalities who, in addition to sound specialist knowledge, also bring skills such as initiative, a sense of responsibility, courage, creativity and empathy.The introductory days offer a low-threshold, motivating and playful approach to entrepreneurship and innovation, enable students to experience self-efficacy at an early stage at the beginning of their studies and convey a variety of key competencies of an "entrepreneurial mindset" such as initiative, a sense of responsibility and creativity.
entreTime (European Commission, COSME)
entreTime is a new entrepreneurship education service aimed at upskilling educators within higher education institutions and upgrading their pedagogical tools on this domain by providing a comprehensive training package.
Following our specific philosophy which considers entrepreneurship as a holistic pedagogical teaching method ("teaching through entrepreneurship"), a unique academic platform for spreading entrepreneurial teaching and co-creation, also outside the traditional domain of business schools and economic faculties, will be set up and validated throughout three years of activity, engaging top level educators across Europe.
Following the philosophy "teaching through entrepreneurship", a pool of experienced professionals in the domain has developed a three-month train-the-trainer program . Join the course here: https://www.entretime.eu/
Euforia (EU, EIT Urban Mobility)
EUFORIA aims to establish an infrastructure that allows ecosystems to foster societal innovation in cities by igniting Urban Resilience Innovation Hubs and an associated innovation framework. The overall purpose of the proposed education activities is to close the knowledge gap within urban mobility, enabling the development of mobility for liveable urban spaces. This includes fostering innovation and entrepreneurship skills in a lifelong learning perspective.
Impact for Future (StMWi Bavaria)
As one of six successful submissions, the joint project "Impact for Future" of the Munich partner consortium has received a million euro grant from the Bavarian Ministry of Science for "impact-oriented entrepreneurship education". With this funding, the Bavarian university partners are providing thousands of students and scientists with in-depth training in impact orientation and firmly anchoring the topic of impact and social responsibility in Bavaria's university landscape.
NEBourhoods (European Commission, New European Bauhaus NEB)
Munich-Neuperlach is one of five lighthouse projects in the European Commission's New Eurpean Bauhaus Initiative.
In May 2022, the European Commission announced that the joint Munich Verbund application "Creating NEBourhoods Together" - Munich Neuperlach will be funded as one of five lighthouse projects with exemplary function within the New European Bauhaus (NEB). Together, Munich Neuperlach will be prepared for the future as outlined by the European Green Deal in terms of the built environment, circular economy, mobility, energy, food and health as part of the New European Bauhaus. The project will build on the area's strengths - a strong sense of community, extensive green spaces, large, albeit in need of renovation, housing - and address its weaknesses - higher than average unemployment and lower than average education levels. Around five million euros will be allocated for implementation.
Precelerator (BMBF, StartUpLab@FH)
As part of the program "Research at Universities of Applied Sciences" of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) at the funding initiative "StartUpLab@FH" SCE and HM were successful with their Precelerator concept. The Precelerator is the new Community Space for Entrepreneurship & Prototyping at HM - both digital and on-site. The goal is to provide low-threshold support for innovative students and scientists through targeted support in fuzzy-front-end processes.
Start-up Certificate (Zeidler Research Foundation)
The Start-up Certificate "Founding your own start-up" of the HM - Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences and the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE) is made possible by funding from the Zeidler-Research-Foundation. The program is a 24-week accelerator program for the realization of one's own start-up idea including an official certificate degree in start-up. It combines start-up support and training for founders. We support projects in the pre-start-up phase or early start-up phase of all industries with consulting, budget, workplaces, workshops, events as well as networking on their way as successful founders.
Tandem+ (EU, EIT UM RIS, EIT Urban Mobility)
As part of a consortium of eight renowned European entrepreneurship actors with the Portuguese University of Aveiro in the lead, the SCE won the project "Tandem+" to raise the potential of entrepreneurial higher education institutions in Europe. Tandem+ aims to harness the entrepreneurial potential of European higher education institutions and paves the way for an international Open Entrepreneurship Alliance for social impact in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Central elements of Tandem+ are "Train the Trainer" and micro-credential programs for the network partners, with a special focus on countries from the Regional Innovation Scheme of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
THEI 2.0 (European Commission, Erasmus+)
THEI 2.0 is dedicated to the question of how educational institutions can become more entrepreneurial and innovative. For this, THEI2.0 offers a collection of unique resources for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that want to become more entrepreneurial. The project offers a toolbox for educational institutions to understand and raise their profile and to get concrete recommendations and steps to do so.
TraCCE, European Commission, Erasmus+.
At TraCCE we are developing a digital training program (MOOC) for Creative & Cultural Entrepreneurship in a European consortium. TraCCE helps teachers as well as learners to build up necessary skills and knowledge about entrepreneurship in the cultural and creative sector. The flexibly adaptable training and learning material can be used in courses and workshops as well as clicked through online, independent of time and place. Within the TraCCE partner consortium, we are building a community for cultural and creative entrepreneurship that continues to grow.
