What are Missions?
The Euskampus Missions programmes were created with the aim of creating a network of research, training and innovation capacities that will take part in coordinated actions to define specific missions in certain mission areas.
An Euskampus Mission is...
a collective response led by the Euskampus trustees, and coordinated with other institutions and actors, to achieve predefined goals that address a huge scientific, technological, environmental, cultural or economic challenge, or a mixture of them, through a coordinated agenda of education, research, knowledge transfer and dissemination actions.
What is mentoring?
A process of accompanying the projects within the framework of the Euskampus Missions, which is articulated around five objectives:
- To involve the project teams in the definition of "Euskampus missions" that allow coordinating efforts and integrating the progress and expected impacts of each project in broader transformation processes.
- Raise awareness and provide knowledge and tools to introduce a social impact management methodology based on the Theory of Change in the approved projects.
- Provide spaces of opportunity for the promotion of research talent among students by applying the "Challenge Based Learning" CBL methodology.
- Co-create a scenario of missions linked to the great challenges of our society, coordinating efforts and collective responses involving all the project teams approved by the program and relevant stakeholders.
- Support the process by developing in parallel the Euskampus Digital community.
