"Science Shop explained - creating benefits from public engagement for universities and research"

    Activity: Talk and presentationAcademic presentationAcademic


    The University of Groningen has successfully implemented the Science Shop concept, which brings university knowledge and expertise directly to the service of civil society. This is achieved by involving students and researchers in solving practical problems raised by civil society. This collaboration provides students with practical education with a societal mission, researchers with material for new research questions, and civil society with knowledge-based advice for problem-solving.

    Drawing on his 25 years of international experience, Mulder presents examples of public engagement practices in other European universities alongside the experiences of the Groningen Science Shop. This offers valuable ideas and inspiration for rethinking the teaching, research and communication activities of universities.
