From now on Cups&Cakes will take place every other Wednesday at 12.00-13.00 (CET).
The webinars are scheduled for one hour and consist of two phases:

  •  A 40-minutes presentation of current research work chosen by the speaker (including a 5-minute introduction of general expertise and work in progress within the university on the topic of interest).
  • Open discussion of about 20 minutes.

Each CIVIS member university, in turn, will have the opportunity to present to the CIVIS Community a subject of their research.

What is RIS4CIVIS?

CIVIS has been established as a University that reaches from the local level to the international dimension, focused on responding to local needs, contributing to regional development strategies, and addressing global challenges. The development of Research and Innovation (R&I), as an integral component of its educational mission, has been part of the CIVIS mission from the very beginning.

It is in this perspective that RIS4CIVIS has been elaborated and now operates. The overall objective is to produce an integrated, long-term R&I Strategy that, will over time enable the constituent members of the CIVIS European University to seamlessly integrate their know-how, expertise, and resources in the service of Research and Innovation that effectively addresses current and future societal challenges, at local, regional and international level.
