CIVICA Ambassadors range from undergraduate students to postdoctoral researchers, and represent each university in the alliance. Their role is to promote interaction and exchange within the alliance's communities, and be a first point of contact to CIVICA for their peers.
The Ambassadors network actively shapes CIVICA by initiating bottom-up projects and participating in formal and informal alliance activities.
