Resilient Communities of Practices network creates space for multidisciplinary collaboration and knowledge exchangeRaúl Castano De la Rosa, research field coordinator of Resilient Communities of Practices.
ECIU University, an alliance of 14 innovative European universities, is addressing societal challenges and skills shortages in collaboration with stakeholders and policymakers. Raúl Castano De la Rosa, a postdoctoral researcher, leads the Resilient Communities of Practices network at Tampere University, focusing on sustainable housing design and resilience.
The ECIU University network fosters interdisciplinary collaboration to tackle challenges in energy, circular economy, transport, resilience, and citizen science. Each thematic community is guided by a research field coordinator, promoting networking, best practices sharing, partnerships, and funding applications.
Castano De la Rosa and the ASUTUT research group advocate for transformative change in the built environment and resilience concepts. They emphasize the need for inclusivity and societal engagement in facing challenges. The Resilient Communities of Practices network offers open discussions, knowledge exchange, and tailored support, fostering a co-creation process involving citizens, researchers, industry, and policymakers.
Resilient Communities of Practices provides a space for researchers, especially early-career ones, to collaborate, share resources, and access funding opportunities. Castano De la Rosa highlights the importance of a supportive environment for the university community's growth and well-being.
