ENGAGE.EU for academics

ENGAGE.EU offers interesting events, networks and exchange options for researchers. By working together in the ENGAGE.EU networks for societal change we transform our engagement in research and innovation. We map and analyze societal change drivers, pool, share and link data resources. We push the boundaries of research and innovation by joining forces with actors from industry, non-profit organizations and the public sector, aiming for durable impact.

Colonialism is historically recognised as the practice of subjugation of people and appropriation of land put in place by European nations on the other continents between the XV and XX centuries. But it is much more than this. What are the multiple relations between colonialism, business and human rights? The symposium aims at analysing this question from a 360-degree angle. We invite scholars from all social sciences and any country to present their different perspectives on this pressing question.

Past events

Cross-cultural research is a booming field for academics and practitioners alike. As our knowledge expands, we are increasingly aware of the field’s complexity and the need for researchers to appreciate the numerous controversies that characterize it. In four online sessions, Hofstede Insights and Tilburg University dived into cross-cultural analysis in psychology as well as on the level of societies.

The webinar was on the topic of SDG16 (peace and justice) related funding opportunities. With presentations from the Grant Desk and first-hand experiences on applying for grants.

During the annual ENGAGE.EU event we talked about the research community and offer an exclusive preview of the online community platform.

In this online seminar, hosted by Luiss University Rome, we discussed the impact of privacy violation on society, and the challenges posed by digital markets. There were presentations by Alex De Corniere (UT1 Toulouse) and Inge Graef (Tilburg University) followed by a panel discussion between Alex De Corniere, Inge Graef and Vikoria Robertson (WU Vienna), moderated by Martin Peitz (University of Mannheim).

In this online session, we gave an exclusive preview of the online community platform that we are building for the ENGAGE.EU research community.

At the first ENGAGE.EU Think Tank, researchers exchanged ideas, got together with long-standing colleagues, and learned from leading experts from industry, politics, and academia. The topic of this Think Tank was: The Role of Digitalisation for Sustainable Development and its Impact on European Business, Economics and Societies. Learn more HERE

Since 2011, a team of over 20 researchers and students have worked together with external stakeholders, such as the World Food Programme, the Dutch Foodbanks and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Netherlands, on research projects and knowledge building in this multidisciplinary lab. The work is mainly based on the use of data science to help ensure global food and nutrition security.
