The professorship is part of the project “Expanding Internationality,” a component of the university’s Excellence Strategy, which includes a funding line for international guest professors. The university’s website states: “The objective of this funding line is to bring expert knowledge of renowned international academics to Heidelberg University, to increase and complement the research potential in certain fields, and to extend and internationalize the range of research-based teaching.”
During his professorship, Kaplan, along with Heidelberg University colleague Nina Jude, will be working to develop probabilistic forecasting models applied to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in education.
