#S14 Training activities for qualifying SMEs on R&D collaboration possibilities with research infrastructures (Ready to Research)

Priority Area Education - Developing innovative education and youth

Ready to Research will contribute to the implementation of the life-long learning principle by providing free of charge training tools that empower engineers and scientists in industry and SMEs to make the best use of R&D possibilities offered at universities and research infrastructures. The project will develop a curriculum that presents the scientific possibilities and research methods used in science in a comprehensive, but yet entertaining way. The basic project idea is based on the good practice of www.udasity.org, a teaching methodology that was developed in the USA to democratize education by providing easy and free of charge access to it.
