A webinar on cultural heritage protection and preservation in challenging times through active citizenship mobilisations inside and outside universities.

What is the INOS project?

The Erasmus+ project, INOS (Integrating Open and Citizen Science into Active Learning Approaches in Higher Education), aims to foster the social impact of universities as knowledge creation, sharing and (re-) use ecosystems in the digital economy and to better situate their role in current demands for civic engagement, societal impact and learning opportunities for all.

INOS is funded under the Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships program. Project Number: 2019-1-DK01-KA203-06026
