EU-CONEXUS-RESEARCH FOR SOCIETY aims at the strengthening, modernisation and the internationalisation of the research dimension of the European University for Smart Urban Coastal Sustainability (EU-CONEXUS) and the corresponding institutional transformation for its six partner universities.

The project will show how to develop a joint science and innovation agenda within a transnational research and funding environment and aims at establishing the research focus SUCS on the European and international level. It will contribute to a more comprehensive and socially responsible management system for researchers and other staff contributing to research activities. Joint research infrastructures and resources will be explored, and a common access policy will lead to a more efficient management of these assets. An innovation management strategy will open up new ways of interaction with the innovation eco-system and establish an entrepreneurial mind-set within the researcher community. Finally, methods of open and participatory science will nurture more responsive research practices.

During the project implementation EU-CONEXUS-RESEARCH FOR SOCIETY will cooperate with other European University alliances in order to share experiences, knowledges in order to allow a better functioning of European Universities.
