We invite all members of the consortium and our academics interested in international cooperation and the STARS EU Alliance itself to TIG Seminar Series 2022-2023.

The question on action and interaction between the different Thematic Interest Groups (TIGs) in the Alliance STARS EU have been discussed for a while in the Steering Committee. Not least based on the fact that all our nine Universities now have signed an agreement on long term collaboration through the Alliance and how to proceed on that. And that the TIGs are the form for thematic cross-boundary, interdisciplinary research and knowledge creation that STARS EU Alliance have created to make this. Therefore, the Challenge Lab now initiate a series of seminars/workshops where all TIG participants from our universities could meet. The seminar series are thought to be once a month starting on Tuesday December 6th and that every TIG then has one seminar each. Where they present what has been done in the TIG so far and what is being planned. In form of collaborations, projects, applications etc. But also, that there will be time for discussions and comments from participants attending each seminar. So that there could be shared lessons learnt and thoughts on future development. And not least if there are possibilities on collaborations between TIGs as well.

The seminars will be hosted at University West (as Lead for Challenge Lab) and run at Zoom platform. Meetings are planned for Tuesday afternoons (15:00-16:00 CET) the first Tuesday each month from December 2022 through September 2023.
