This session consisted of two days full of exchanges, presentations, workshops and… moments of friendliness and fun!
This event gathered researchers from all the ERUA universities and some researchers of some members-to-be as the SWPS (Poland) and the University of Macerata (Italy).The first day concentrated on the theme of collaborative research for social innovation. It explored the perspective of “Care”, encouraged the participants to exchange the best practices on collaborative research and assessed and advised the projects that emerged from the collaboration in Re: ERUA (CoopdeMasques et CoCult).
Later, the researchers addressed the issue of participatory and collaborative research according to interdisciplinary and intersectoral research approaches while exploring the new pathways of the European Commission in this sense.
The second day started with a question: Can we offer a different definition of « excellent » research?
Participants discussed how they could value different elements when defining research as « excellent,» i.e. societal impact, valuing the third mission, or encouraging the spread of scientific knowledge to society through open science tools.
So stay tuned to keep abreast of developments, and do not hesitate to contact the Re: ERUA team to participate in online or in-person discussions on these topics!
