The ANIS Scholarships program was launched in 2018 at the initiative of ANIS to stimulate the efforts of young teachers in introducing the latest technologies in the industry and innovative teaching techniques in the university curriculum. The program has a national coverage, and the applicants whose projects are selected benefit from a sponsorship of the teaching activity worth 5,000 euros.
In the first three editions of the program, sponsorships totaling 165,000 euros were offered to 33 selected projects. They were selected from 98 enrolled courses, which take place in 26 faculties, located in eight cities nationwide. At the same time, the program was the basis for the creation of three collaborations between academia and companies, on R&D projects.
