HEIRRI was present at the conference too. On Tuesday 21st, Núria Saladié presented the project at the internal consortium meeting of EnRRICH, which gathered the EnRRICH team but also people from their Advisory Boards. Moreover, on Thursday 23rd, Nadja Gmelch delivered a speech in front of the whole conference at the plenary session, where she presented the GUNi network and HEIRRI. It was a great moment for the public dissemination of the project with target audience.

The conference was a fantastic opportunity to learn what the EnRRICH project has achieved until now. It was a very interesting event, full of self-reflecting sessions and workshops that promoted critical thinking and made participants deconstruct and learn about every day what we do and how we do it. Moreover, on the plenary session of Thursday, Rajesh Tandon, UNESCO Chair on Community Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education, gave a speech, talking about Inclusion in a very inspiring talk.

HEIRRI and EnRRICH have many common points that are worth exploring in order to optimize time and resources. The EnRRICH conference helped to strengthen bridges between the two initiatives!
