Enhancing the Responsible and Sustainable Expansion of the Science Shop Ecosystem in Europe

ABOUT SCISHOPS

SciShops will build an extensive knowledge base by analysing the practices of the existing European and International Science Shops. The goal is to engage community stakeholders in knowledge cafes and other community events in order to provide examples of the benefits of community-based research.

The developed strategies and novel tools provided by the project, including a knowledge hub, a SciShops navigator, twinning and matchmaking platform, seek to provide guidelines for different types of organizations on how to establish and run a Science Shop.
