In this workshop, we will present the benefits of this toolbox and hear about the pilot of the University of Twente. In the second part of the interactive workshop, we would like you to reflect and share good practises and challenges in community engagement across the ECIU network.

  • How can we as universities address societal needs in partnership with communities?
