1-5 April, Greece
SciCulture will train university students and researchers through an open-ended educative approach that encourages co-creation between diverse disciplines towards a common objective. By developing diverse lifelong, communication and entrepreneurial skills, the project aims to encourage innovative collaborations and networks of best practice to develop. Excellence in skill development and interdisciplinary innovation is needed to make universities more relevant to society and is also in line with the EU Modernisation Agenda of Higher Education priority areas.
The employability and professional skills of these participants will be greatly improved by developing their communication, problem-solving and team working skills, with a design thinking and creative approach within an interdisciplinary, entrepreneurial environment.
The winter school that will be conducted on 1-5 April, in Athens, Greece addresses to a variety of public groups, in particular HEI students and it will engage them in innovative ways with STEM subjects towards filling Europe’s STEM skills gap. The network of higher education and research institutions, and enterprise empowered by this project will establish best practices in building the course but also, through community arts approaches, build the social responsibility of all of those engaged.
Participants will be
- students from STEM subjects, the arts and business (undergraduates & postgraduates),
- professionals and
- early career researchers
that will collaborate and learn from one another.
