Civic university: The new university model
Research and Innovation (R&I) Loop sets its ambition in leveraging this new model where the regional dimension and social innovation enables and opens citizen-centric strategies.
The project proposes a systemic and holistic approach that creates bridges and links between 3 main pillars: research, education, and innovation.
These 3 main pillars are reflected in the twofold steps of the proposed loop:
Education > Nurturing
Embedding research into curricula, meaning that HEIs, leaders, and teachers are aware and put into practice a mix of research-led/-oriented (linked to staff learning/presenting current research and developing research skills and techniques) and research-based/-tutored (linked to students learning how to do research and be a researcher as well as engaging in research discussions) practices.
The objectives of the R&I Loop are to:
Develop, test and mainstream a systemic and holistic approach that enhances the education, research, and innovation links of HEIs
Build, test, and scale-up of capacitation actions for HEIs’ teachers, researchers, and staff to be better equipped to respond to social challenges and needs
Design, test, and mainstream supporting tools that allow HEIs’ to adopt a systemic holistic approach and improve their educational offer
The project is expected to have a positive impact on the following groups.
