CIVICA Research Excellence Tours

CIVICA Research Excellence Tours

The Excellence Tours organised under CIVICA Research aims to assert the scientific identity of the CIVICA alliance within the global academic community. 

Leading scholars are invited on a ‘tour’ whereby they give seminars and/or workshops across several CIVICA institutions. These events allow scholars to present their research, share their expertise, and meet with faculty and early-stage researchers at the host institutions. 

Scholars are selected by CIVICA’s thematic research teams and come from different disciplines to present on a topic related to CIVICA's four focus areas:

  • Societies in Transition, Crises of Earth
  • Democracy in the 21st Century
  • Europe Revisited
  • Data-Driven Technologies for the Social Sciences
