EUROPEAN DIGITAL UNIVERCITY - RESEARCH AND INNOVATION WITH AND FOR SOCIETY

Project description

Solving problems with an open science-oriented approach

The Lisbon Treaty defines the European Research Area (ERA) as a unified research area open to the world and based on the internal market. The ERA enables free circulation of researchers, scientific knowledge and technology. In this context, the EU-funded EDUC-SHARE project aims to transform the alliance of the European Digital UniverCity (EDUC) into a fully integrated university that achieves its missions (education, research and innovation at the European scale). The reasoning behind this is to give full importance to European citizens’ participation in identifying and solving current and future challenges in an open science-oriented approach, while promoting EU values and fundamental rights. The project will identify barriers at institutional, local, national and European levels.

Objective

At a time when we are coping a series of societal challenges there is an urgent need for a fully-implemented European Research Area allowing free circulation of knowledge, involving societal actors in the whole research and innovation process in order to better align its objectives with the values, needs and expectations of society.

Through EDUC-SHARE, the European Digital UniverCity (EDUC) ambitions to turn its Alliance into a fully integrated university which meets all its missions (education, research and innovation at the European scale), that will give full importance to European citizens’ participation to identify and solve current and future challenges in an Open-Science-oriented approach, while promoting EU values and fundamental rights.

The EDUC-SHARE project aims to deepen ongoing transformation and institutional changes of both the EDUC university members and the alliance as a whole, based on their own identified needs with an Open-Science-oriented evolution of practices.
As part of its deployment, EDUC-SHARE will identify barriers at the institutional, local, national or European levels that will be reported to the relevant authorities in order to lower them for achieving a full integration of its proposed actions at the alliance or inter-alliance level. The EDUC alliance will then serve as a model of implemented European Research Area (ERA) and European Higher Education Area (EHEA) by creating a favourable, inclusive, environment interconnecting research and innovation ecosystems of its university members to speed up technology transfer taking into account citizens' concerns in policy making.
