Heidi erasmus+

HEIDI (2021-2023)

ExCiteS leads this 2-year Erasmus+ project aimed at repositioning universities more centrally, as co-creators of knowledge, for social change. This is in response to the traditional models of knowledge creation and dissemination being increasingly challenged by bottom-up, community-driven action. Project priorities include innovative digital action, fostering civic engagement, and tackling skills gaps and mismatches.

An ambitious programme of work will develop the skills of university staff and students and create frameworks for civic engagement between universities and voluntary sector and civic society organisations.
