Training and mentoring of science shops

Training and mentoring of science shops

Objective

TRAMS will develop specific structural services for the open International Science Shop Network Living Knowledge.
In this way co-ordination actions in TRAMS will contribute to the goals of the network. It will be an important step for future funding of the network. EC project ISSNET shows a growing request for tools and support to get started with new science shop activities in many regions of Europe. The training and mentoring activities that will be developed in TRAMS will fulfil an expressed need, and provide a benefit for civil society.
After pilot activities and development of materials in TRAMS the tools for support will be made available for the members of the network.
This will assure the future use of the deliverables of TRAMS. Preliminary results of ISSNET make clear within the network there is a demand for these activities.
TRAMS is an indispensable milestone in the networking of science shops.
Development and dissemination of innovative practice in science shops will be encouraged, through a customised training programme toolbox and appropriate partnering and exchange (mentoring) among members of Living Knowledge.
TRAMS will focus on both sides (users and suppliers) in training and mentoring, because both groups are important stakeholders in the project. This will allow the project to have a direct input on needs for training and mentoring and on the available tools and expertise. The users in TRAMS are the pilot group of the mentoring and training activities.
All members of Living Knowledge can participate in activities of TRAMS (e.g. workshops) and make use of the results and materials of TRAMS.
The work packages of TRAMS will focus on
1) Mentoring,
2) Training materials,
3) E-modules,
4) Dissemination of results.
TRAMS will co-ordinate co-operation with the members of the International Science Shop Network. It will build on the results and recommendations of previous EC projects (SCIPAS, Interacts, ISSNET)
