Research & Innovation For Cities and Citizens

Objective

The seven universities composing the European Universities Alliance “EC2U”, rooted in the dialogue between universities and cities, are again joining forces to extend the activities of the EC2U Alliance to the R&I fields, in order to transform the EC2U Alliance into the core driver of a Pan-European Knowledge Ecosystem (PEKE) via a series of well-thought activities with relevant (local) stakeholders: the targeted systemic impact will create a fully-embedded synergy between all four missions of the Knowledge square.
This will be achieved by taking stock of the structures created under the EC2U Erasmus+ project and by complementing them with results and outputs from eight Work Packages (WP) that will act as “mini-engines” aiming at making the associated transformation a reality and delivering all components of the PEKE:
- WP1 “Transformation management”, led by University of Poitiers
- WP2 “EC2U R&I agenda”, led by University of Salamanca
- WP3 “EC2U People empowerment”, led by University of Coimbra
- WP4 “EC2U R&I platforms”, led by University of Pavia
- WP5 “EC2U innovation sphere”, led by University of Jena
- WP6 “EC2U Knowledge ecosystems”, led by University of Iasi
- WP7 “Open EC2U”, led by University of Turku
- WP8 “Transformation dissemination”, led by University of Poitiers
A focus point will be the promotion of inclusive education and research communities, gender equality, diversity and intersectionality.
The dissemination and exploitation of RI4C2 outputs will be performed in direct interaction with the EC2U Alliance, via multiplier events, tools for the diverse communities and global policy guidelines to local, national and European policymakers and stakeholders.
The RI4C2 project will also act as the coordinator of the FOREU2 forum composed of the 24 newly selected Alliances.
