Research is Cool and Useful!

Duration: March 2019 – August 2020

Partners: Mihai and Maria Frățilă Foundation

The aim of the project is to build a local culture that relies on evidence-based civic engagement through developing advanced research skills among the youth of Țara Făgărașului.

We aim to form a team of 12 to 17 youth that are interested in addressing local challenges through research and policy analysis. We will provide learning opportunities for the young researchers, as well as an adequate learning space, access to data, and relevant specialized literature.

Research is cool & useful will be implemented in 2019-2020.
