Why Grassroots projects?

Grassroots are small-scale, accessible ICT projects, from which the results immediately can be implemented in education. Grassroots are a great example of introducing and testing new methods using technology in education.
Individual teachers and students can submit a proposal for Grassroots projects. For each Grassroot project the subvention is €1000.
Besides individual Grassroots projects, departments can request financial aid for a program of 5-10 combined Grassroots.

Get inspired by the previous projects and apply for your own Grassroots project!
See UvA Grassroots blog. There you can find the blog about the FNWI two Grassroots programs (project leader Marcel Vreeswijk), “The power of chalkless” and “Van het Krijt naar het Tablet-tijdperk”.
You can watch the 1 minute video (link to VIDEO) about the Grassroots of Timo Halbesma, the Faculty of Science student, who developed the CARD application using a student Grassroots.
You can follow developments of FNWI Grassroots on Starfish.
