InSPIRES as an EU Success Story
This summer, InSPIRES project has been spotlighted among other EU research success stories. European Commission’s official web page focussed on the consortium’s international cooperation values. This and other elements were illustrated with examples from the partners’ different challenges and lessons learned.
Under the title “Science shops inspire better research and innovation”, the article summarized: “Poor communication can have dire consequences in vital areas like the environment and health. Innovative ‘science shop’ projects, which translate society’s questions into a language that scientists understand, are making a difference in remote Bolivian communities learning about Chagas disease, among Hepatitis C patients in Tunisia, and in projects closer to Europe’s shores, too.”
