Successful piloting of TEFCE Toolbox in Dresden, Germany

June 3, 2019

The first piloting of the TEFCE Toolbox for community-engaged universities took place at the Technische Universitat Dresden on 14-15 May 2019 and resulted in the first “proof-of-concept” of the TEFCE Toolbox.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the piloting team from TU Dresden and the City of Dresden, by the TEFCE Expert Team representatives and by a “peer-learning” team from the University of Twente and Regio Twente (who will carry out piloting in June 2019).

The meeting consisted of workshops to process and analyse 27 community-engaged practices collected by the Dresden piloting team and to attempt to reach conclusions regarding the nature and level of community engagement at the university level.

The overall conclusion of the Dresden piloting meeting was that the TEFCE Toolbox works in practice and brings value in providing a ‘big picture’ of how community-engaged the institution is. At the same time, the team identified several aspects of the Toolbox that could be further improved and clarified for future piloting visits.

The piloting visits will take place in 2019, in May (Dresden), June (Twente), September (Rijeka) and November (Dublin).

A detailed report of the piloting visit will be uploaded by 15 June here:
