COOPERATION WITH THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT
INNOVATIONS MARINA OF THE UNIVERSITY OF GDANSK
The Innovations Marina of Gdansk University is a cooperation scheme between various units of the Pomerania Region and the University. Its main objective is a search for solutions to the local challenges through a model of the so called Science Shop, which is an action scheme facilitating and ensuring an accomplishment of joint projects directed at the needs of social organizations which usually have a difficult access to scientific research.
In the case of the Innovations Marina, we offer our pilot assistance to non-governmental organizations in the sphere of their cooperation with our students, who supervised by mentors and experts will propose solutions to the selected challenges submitted by organizations or local communities. This will give our students an opportunity to verify their knowledge in practice, and to acquire new competence and skills, especially transferable ones.
The organizations may acquire a good partner with innovative ideas compatible with their goals, and the University may get new challenges and investigation spheres.
