Unlocking Opportunities for Researchers
At EDUC, we believe in fostering a dynamic and inclusive educational environment that empowers students to become active participants in shaping the future. Our alliance is committed to redefining the way we approach education, with a strong focus on civil participation and regional impact.
Contributing to the European Research Area
In alignment with the fourth objective of the new European Research Area, EDUC actively supports the mobility of researchers and the free flow of knowledge and technology. Our joint program for young researchers offers opportunities for promising early-stage scholars across disciplines.
Our recruitment and support processes adhere to the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, promoting gender equality, diversity, inclusiveness, and family-friendliness. Our young researchers benefit from individualized research plans, extended mobility phases, specific trainings, and cross-institutional collaborations, fostering key research and transferable skills in order to establish attractive career paths for international scholars, emphasizing originality, transdisciplinarity, innovative potential, and the connection between research and teaching.
EDUC Internship Scheme: Bridging Education and the Real World
Our EDUC Internship Scheme is designed to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and real-world application. It provides students at the bachelor's and master's levels with the opportunity to participate in cross-sectional and international internships. Our goal is to help students apply and consolidate their academic knowledge, develop relevant competences, and enhance their employability and entrepreneurial thinking.
The internship program covers a wide range of professional contexts, from businesses to social and cultural institutions, NGOs, and public services, spanning various sectors, including health, social sciences, humanities, and technical fields.
Nurturing an Entrepreneurial Mindset for a Creative Europe
In today's rapidly evolving world, Europe needs a culture of creativity and innovation, and it starts with our students. We offer challenge-based team learning to master's students, focusing on problem-solving, market awareness, leadership, and business acumen. For doctoral students and postdocs, we provide specialized training in technology transfer, design thinking, and business models, bridging the gap between academia and industry.
Through our extensive network of partner universities and associated organizations, EDUC facilitates challenge-based team learning for an entrepreneurial mindset. This network includes business incubators, social entrepreneurship organizations, career guidance services, and various economic actors.

Disabilities and Abilities Framed by Context - EDUC-SHARE Conference
We are excited to invite you for our upcoming two-day conference on the issue of disability, titled "Disabilities and Abilities Framed by Context." The conference will take place on the 16th and 17th of January 2024 at the University of Pécs, Hungary, and is part of the EDUC-SHARE project, a collaborative initiative involving eight universities.
Disabilities and Abilities Framed by Context
In the landscape of disability studies, it is imperative to recognize the dynamic interplay between disabilities and consequently abilities or privileges within specific contexts. Whether viewed through a social lens or within the framework of clinical psychology, these conditions are not static entities but rather intricately shaped by the environments in which they manifest. This conference aims to explore this dynamic relationship, emphasizing the contextual nature of disabilities and abilities and how these conditions are influenced by various factors. While the medical model views disability as a personal deficit or impairment, the social model shifts the focus to societal and environmental factors that contribute to disabling conditions, understanding disability is not solely a result of an individual's physical or mental condition but also socially constructed, seen as a product of societal attitudes, policies, and physical barriers.
We invite researchers from the EDUC network who are engaged in service, work, research, and teaching related to the concept of disability from diverse perspectives. Our goal is to curate a panel of experts presenting their unique insights, fostering dialogue, and identifying common grounds and further possibilities of collaboration.
About the Conference:
The conference, hosted by the University of Pécs, will be held as part of the EDUC-SHARE project's WP 1, focusing on fostering cooperation among researchers interested in the field of disability. The travel costs will be paid by your own EDUC partner university, while hosting, accommodation and catering from the University of Pécs.
As a respected researcher in the field, your expertise and insights are highly valued. We invite you to participate in this conference, offering a platform for the exchange of knowledge, the sharing of research interests, and the exploration of potential collaborations. By bringing together experts from each university involved in the EDUC-SHARE program, we aim to facilitate in-depth discussions that can lead to meaningful collaborations in addressing challenges related to disability.
Confirmation of Participation:
To express your interest in participating, kindly send to one of us an email by the 15th of December, and please provide us with a working title for your presentation. This will enable us to tailor the program.

Let's come together for a transformative exploration of disabilities and abilities – framing the context for a more inclusive tomorrow.
The future of science: scientific archives and new research (29-30th of November 2023)
Venue: Amphithéâtre Max Weber/ Salle du Conseil de la MSH Mondes
Coorganisers: Ghislaine Glasson-Deschaumes (MSH Mondes) and Monica Heintz (University of Paris Nanterre)
The testimonial value of scientific archives cannot be denied: archives help historians and particularly historians of science retrace science’s history, its place in society, past and future. But what other direct value could be assigned to old scientific archives? Could scientific archives be used for producing new scientific results, either in their discipline or in another? Could they be used for informing new artistic or societal work or bring about technological innovations? This conference aims to consider examples of reuses of scientific material for producing new results.
