UNIBILITY

The UNIBILITY project aims at strengthening the relationships of universities with their local communities through USR (university social responsibility) activities. Specifically the project will develop strategies on how universities can increase their social responsibility actively on student and researcher level, it will develop and implement USR service learning projects impacting the local community in the area of environmental, social or economic research, and will develop a USR Curriculum and train university management and students with it.
