ENGAGE.EU Reports and Deliverables
The target of this report is to summarize this analysis and comparison of the quality management mechanisms as well as mapping good practices concerning quality management mechanisms at members’ institutions. It also serves as a foundation for further discussion of good practices within the task group to be implemented in the Alliance.
In this report a set of key competences is proposed that ENGAGE.EU learners need in facing the societal challenges of today and the future. Different existing models of key competences are discussed and the suggested ENGAGE.EU approach for key competences follows an existing integrative reference framework for sustainability academic programs. Based on that framework seven key competences for ENGAGE.EU are described as the starting point of the ENGAGE.EU Framework for learning.
The report is meant to present an overview of the coverage offered on key societal change drivers by the research activities carried out at ENGAGE.EU’s partner universities. Using as key societal change drivers the Sustainable and Development Goals (SDGs), in line with the UN and EU’s approach, the mapping has been accomplished by each partner on research outputs/publications (2015-2020), on research centres and on nationally and internationally funded research projects under way. The report highlights that across the ENGAGE.EU Consortium research activities tend to converge around three mains SDGs: no. 8, on decent work and economic growth; no. 3 good health and well-being; and no. 16, on peace, justice and strong institutions. By the same token, the report also reveals that amongst the main and emergent research themes are digitalization and sustainability.
The phrase “Green mobility” sounds like an oxymoron, as the two notions seem to be opposed at first
glance. While mobility is usually understood as a set of movements relative to human activity, it seems
at odds with today’s environmental imperatives that we are all aware of. Therefore, the notion of
green mobility invites us to consider new forms of mobility and rethink our practices at all levels and
in a sectional way.
This document is composed of four main sections: Introduction, Survey Analysis, Proposed methodology, Conclusion. The survey analysis is divided in two sub-sections: quantitative and qualitative sub-sections in which the commonalities and differences among partners are analysed. Finally, two annexes are proposed.
Based on a mapping of existing frameworks, we develop our own
ENGAGE.EU Innopreneurship Definition and an ENGAGE.EU Innopreneurial
Mindset Framework. Both serve as a theoretical fundament for our actions
towards creating a fostering environment for innopreneurs.
