EELISA Communities are one of the core elements of EELISA Alliance. They are mission-driven groups where education, research, professional experience, and societal challenges merge – where the transformation of knowledge into action happens.
They bring together students, teachers, staff, and researchers from all partner universities with prestigious professionals, grassroots organizations, citizens, private companies, and public institutions to find innovative solutions to real-world challenges.
But how are these communities forming? What type of innovative experiences do these EELISA Communities offer? How are they impacting the world around them?
Every week, the #EELISAGameChangers campaign will give the spotlight to one of the EELISA Communites, their people, mission, and activities.
Get an insight into the transformative processes that are taking place within EELISA, the people who are making it happen, and let yourself be inspired by them!
MEET EELISA GAME CHANGERS # 1 – EELISA OPEN SCIENCE COMMUNITY
“ Our aim is to empower research, education and innovation through open science practices to increase efficiency and productivity in light of the EU’s open science policy. We want to bring together and work with all beneficiaries, stakeholders and experts to ensure society gets the most out of science through the policies, strategies and tools developed by EELISA to be part of the open science ecosystem”
