Poster Educating and researching the european university

European Researchers Night is part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions umbrella, and it’s a research communication and promotion event taking place across EU Member State.

As a member of the European University Alliance CHARM-EU, our ambition is to reconcile humanity with the planet by creating the university of the future. As part of our actions towards a sustainable future, last 24 September 2021, for the first time we have joined the European Researchers' Night event organised by our partner  Trinity College Dublin. During the event participants had the chance to learn on how we work towards bringing together sustainability, inclusion and technology in higher education and research.

During the event Dr Silvia Gallagher talked about MSc transdisciplinary, challenge based programme development between the five different member universities, and Dr Nina Shiel explored current practices in Responsible Research and Innovation across the Alliance as part of the TORCH project.

This one-hour event was addressed to all Higher Education professionals, researchers, and anyone with an interest in the future of higher education and research.
