About the research seminars
One of the main objectives of the EDUC partner universities is to encourage and strengthen cooperation in research. Specifically, the Alliance identified seven main research areas towards which addressing common challenges and missions.
The research areas were chosen by the Alliance because they reflect both the strength and diversity of its six members’ research domains. They strike a balance between hard sciences and socio-humanities, with the aim to give to a wide range of researchers and PhD students the possibility to successfully cooperate. Moreover, these themes address societal challenges which can benefit from cross-disciplinary contributions and the direct involvement of local ecosystems and policy makers.
The seminars will take place starting from March 2021, according to the list below. Due to the current sanitary context, some seminars will take the form of online events, with the possibility of a later follow-up in-person event when the sanitary conditions allow it. The detailed programme and more details about the location of the events will be communicated in due time. The working language of the seminars will be English.
