Inspireurope Regional Outreach Workshop


On behalf of Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, and in collaboration with the Inspireurope initiative to support researchers at risk, we are pleased to invite you to an Inspireurope South East Europe Regional Outreach Workshop, which will be held on  March 31, 2022  in Thessaloniki, Greece (venue: Aristotle University Research Dissemination Center-KEDEA).

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the Workshop will be held in a hybrid form (physical presence and online). In accordance with current health and safety measures participation on-site may be limited.  

This workshop will bring together academics, HEI representatives, NGOs, national/EU representatives, representatives of professional/industry associations and researchers at risk along with the project partners to share experience and information on existing support and funding programs as well as good practices to promote cooperation across Europe in support of researchers at risk. 

The workshop will raise awareness and promote collaboration in South East Europe to support researchers at risk. There will be a particular emphasis on ways employers and host institutions can actively support researchers at risk to continue their careers in a safe work environment in Europe, whether in academia, business, NGOs, think tanks or other sectors. It, also, aims to discuss challenges and good practices and provide useful guidelines for national-level actions in Europe in support of researchers at risk. 

 The workshop will include sessions on:
• Academic Freedom: Core Academic Value and Pillar of Democracy

• Building a culture of welcome at South East European institutions

• Preparing the work environment in the academic and non-academic sectors
