What does socially engaged research and teaching involve?

This library guide was created as part of the European CIRCLET project (@CIRCLET_EU) that the UOC is involved in. Its mission is to encourage teaching staff to include community engaged research and learning (CERL) in the courses they teach. This involves fostering collaboration with organizations and institutions in the community.

The aim is for research and teaching to tackle real-life problems together, which could lead to boosting mobility in a certain city district or improving patients' quality of life.
