The Educational Intervention Fund (FIP)

The university has defined internal calls for projects such as the FIP or the SDN9 project of the digital master plan. You can also create a MOOC or respond to a call for projects from thematic digital universities. CEIP can help you define your project and write your response to the call for projects.

The Fonds d'Intervention Pédagogique, FIP, of the University of Aix-Marseille aims to promote large-scale initiatives in the field of educational transformation. The funded schemes aim to renew the methods of teaching and monitoring students, and may be transferable within the institution.

1. presentation

The FIP is intended for all components of the institution. Projects may come from the central level of the component, such as pedagogical teams or departments. They may also combine several components in a multidisciplinary perspective or with a view to pooling teaching or educational resources. In this respect, interdisciplinary thematic training groups, GIFT, are eligible. These projects may be linked to other educational initiatives funded within the components.

The Training and University Life Commission, CFVU, of the institution will be responsible for the selection of projects.

Nature of eligible projects and expenses:

Projects must be structuring and of a significant scale; they may concern in particular:

  • initiatives for specific audiences (scholarship students, students in difficulty, students with disabilities, students who are distant or unable to attend, etc.);
  • new evaluation practices;
  • equipment acquisitions as part of new educational projects;
  • the organisation and equipment of innovative educational spaces;
  • educational projects based on study visits, including virtual ones;
  • professional simulations, real or virtual;
  • new support measures for reorientation or professional integration;

This list is not intended to be exhaustive; any other project of an educational nature, particularly original, and allowing dissemination to a wide audience of students is potentially eligible for the IFP. In all cases, funding requests must be presented and contextualized as part of a coherent educational project. Finally, some projects may be proposed in connection with common services or other structures of the university (BVE-MH, SCD, SIUAPS, SUFA, SUIO,...).
