The ROCKET project (Göttingen, Groningen, Uppsala) kicks-off!

The universities of Göttingen, Groningen and Uppsala are proud to announce that their joint project ‘ROCKET: Role-Playing Games on Conflict Transformation for Equity in Higher Education through Virtual Exchange’ has been selected for funding by Erasmus+ as a cooperation partnership in higher education (funding 400.000 Euro).

ROCKET aims to foster inclusion and diversity, stimulate innovative teaching and learning practices, and promote interconnected higher education systems both within and beyond the ENLIGHT network. This will be achieved by developing a concept for a ‘Critical Virtual Exchange’ which will allow students, lecturers, administrative staff and consortium members to connect online.

By implementing the practices of role-playing games and conflict transformation, online interaction can be innovated, allowing for interdisciplinary collaboration and a change of perspective. As a result, the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion will be strengthened throughout European Higher Education.

The ROCKET project was launched in January 2024 with an official Kick Off taking place in February at Göttingen university. More events are being planned. There are upcoming trainings for both teachers and administrative staff of all ENLIGHT partners. Further, outreach conferences will be announced, beginning with an exciting hybrid event in Groningen from 28 – 30 October 2024, which will be open for everyone.
