The Project

We at eDOCation believe that young researchers ("eDOCs") can contribute to the transfer of knowledge from universities to business practice through online and offline training and seminars. At the same time, they can increase the relevance of their research und improve their future prospects.


We are Alexander Edeling (✉️) and Tobias Hornig (✉️). Together we completed our PhD in Marketing at the University of Cologne. Now we form the eDOCation team  as PostDoc at the University (Alex) and Head of Advanced Analytics in industry (Tobi).

Funding by The Stifterverband

Since November 2020, German Stifterverband has funded eDOCation as one of the "100 Best Ideas for Tomorrow's Education, Science and Innovation System" as part of the  WIRKUNG HOCH 100 initiative (a third-party project of the University of Cologne).
