One of them is the project ‘GENERATION AI’ developed by Prof. Avraamidou, in collaboration with Prof. Dimka Karastoyanova of the Bernoulli Institute and with support from Science LinX. The aim of this project is to support teachers and young learners in developing an evidence-based understanding of the complexities and basic principles of artificial intelligence (AI) and how they can be integrated in teaching learning. The UG is coordinator of this project, which consists of six partners from the Netherlands, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and Ireland. The total grant is worth EUR 275,440, of which EUR 62,640 is for the UG.

The other project, TECT - Training in Embodied Critical Thinking, which involves Dr. Van Vugt, brings together philosophers, computer scientists, cognitive scientists and environmental designers who reflect about how to teach critical thinking and how to connect it to personal and societal transformation. The programs funded by the grant will be online education, three summer schools (one at the UG) and individual research projects. The University of Iceland coordinates this project and other partners are University of Applied Sciences Jena, University of Ljubljana, Technion Haifa and ETH Zurich. The total grant is EUR 245,444, of which EUR 48,974 is for the UG.
