CIVIS launches a Call for Activities for its Hub on Cities, Territories and Mobility
On 29 April 2021, the Steering Committee validated the launch of a brand new call for proposals dedicated to the development of CIVIS's Hub 4 activities on Cities, Territories and Mobility.
All activities falling under the Hub theme are welcome. 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).
Two types of initiatives have been identified:
- Activities that are “ready to go” and for which we can offer CIVIS branding, networks, and support as well as student and staff mobilities.
- Activities that are at the “planning stage” for which planning is needed for 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.
