Deadline for applications: 30 June 2021

We welcome proposals for activities relevant to the Hub’s themes. With the Hubs building up a framework for research-driven and challenge-based joint educational activities, our objective is to foster synergies among education and R&I (research and innovation). Proposed activities can, for example, include courses, summer schools, workshops, semesters, project supervision, and research exchanges. The activities could include training & research projects with students as well as workshops/meetings of academic staff to develop future joint activities. At least one joint and interdisciplinary educational program shall be established within the Hub by the end of 2022 (‘joint and interdisciplinary educational programs’ could be CIVIS modules, CIVIS Micro-programs or multilateral M.A. programs, that can be built on existing joint degree programs between CIVIS partners).

We welcome proposals based on two types of initiatives:

  1. Activities that are “ready to go” provided that they comply with the “must be fulfilled” criteria below. For these activities, we can offer CIVIS branding, networks, and support as well as student and staff mobilities.
  2. Activities which are at the “planning stage”. These are activities for which planning is needed for the implementation of joint teaching projects within the next academic year. For these activities, we can offer CIVIS networks and support as well as staff mobilities so that members can meet (virtually or physically) to exchange ideas.

If you need support for finding partners or guidance on the CIVIS approach, please contact the Hub 2 Council members at your University or the chairpersons of the Hub 2 Council.
