The reSEArch-EU Project (reinforcing SustainablE Actions, resilience, cooperation and harmonisation across and by the SEA-EU Alliance) is an initiative of the European University of the Seas (SEA-EU), an alliance of six coastal European universities which share research interests and a commitment to integrate their infrastructures and harmonize their functioning to thrive and adapt to today’s changing world.
Interesting activities that have been performed regarding co-designing, co-creating and co-delivering knowledge with and for stakeholders and citizens:
- Mapping and analysis of approached and strategies within the SEA-EU Alliance
- Enhancing transdisciplinary cooperation by pilot projects
Several pilot projects will test different formats of stakeholder engagement. Each format was specifically adapted to local and regional settings (https://researcheu.sea-eu.org/for-society/):
- “Kieler Marktplatz” (Market Place Event)
- Transformation Lab
- Marine Science Shop
- Citizen Science
- Development of a good practice guide for transdisciplinarity and stakeholder engagement across the SEA-EU Alliance (December 2023).
- Open Science Videocapsules (https://researcheu.sea-eu.org/meet-the-sea-eu-open-science-ambassadors/) .
- Open Science Info Sessions (https://researcheu.sea-eu.org/open-science-info-sessions/).
With this project, funded under the Horizon 2020 call Support for the Research and Innovation Dimension of European Universities (SwafS), the SEA-EU partners joint efforts to develop successful practices and cooperation models in research and innovation by:
- building an anti-fragile (beyond resilient and robust) and innovative pan-European Alliance;
- aligning our expertise and resources with the needs of the production system;
- co-designing, co-creating and co-delivering knowledge with and for stakeholders and citizens;
- establishing a common Open Science and Open Research Data Policy;
- crafting and developing a common multi/ inter/ and trans/disciplinary research agenda that contributes to sustainable development and growth;
- sharing our critical analyses and best practices for the successful implementation of our research and innovation strategies with other ‘European University’ Alliances.
