The first CHARM-EU Knowledge Creating Team (KCT) information session and induction will take place on 15 June 2020, 11am GMT/12pm CET for one hour. 

A registration link to the Zoom Webinar will be posted here on Friday 12 June 2020.

The CHARM-EU KCT information session and induction will provide the following information:

  • Introduction to the concept and principles of CHARM-EU

  • The role and purpose of KCTs

  • Responsibilities of Core and Expanded Network members

  • Next steps

The virtual event will be attended by academic and research staff from all five Alliance members: University of Barcelona (Spain), Trinity College Dublin, Utrecht University (the Netherlands), Eötvös Loránd University (Hungary) and University of Montpellier (France). During the event, you will be asked to complete a form confirming your interest as a Core or Expanded Network member. 


KCTs are collaborative groups of academics, researchers and extra-academic actors (e.g. traditional and social enterprise) formed around a common expertise/interest related to a sustainability theme. KCTs have two levels of membership: Core and Expanded Network. 

  • KCT Core: research, develop and teach challenge-based content in the pilot masters programme

  • KCT Expanded Network: join and build trans-institutional research communities and communities of CHARM-EU stakeholders connected to thematic challenge areas.

Through engagement with CHARM-EU, staff will be supported to build research networks with academic and extra-academic actors from across Europe and to focus their research efforts within thematic challenge areas. 

Staff will receive training in transdisciplinary approaches to teaching and research and novel pedagogies including challenge-based learning. CHARM-EU particularly welcomes staff from across the full spectrum of disciplines who may not directly have experience connected to sustainability teaching and/or research.
