Our Objectives

The main objective of RECAPHE is to strengthen the profile of applied RDI in PHE in Europe, by:

  • Gaining insight into the scope and nature of applied RDI activities within PHE institutions in Europe
  • Distinguishing the different competences required of applied researchers
  • Assisting researchers in RDI to enhance their capacities
  • Providing a clear future vision for applied RDI in Europe and a strategy on how to achieve it

Our Strategy

To accomplish our Objectives, we will

  • Develop staff competence profiles for research & innovation, by:

    • Screening RDI activities conducted by Professional Higher Education Institutions in Europe
    • Developing staff competence profiles for RDI  to clearly distinguish the different competences that are required from applied research and innovation in Professional Higher Education Institutions
  • Create training materials for PHE research & innovation professionals, by:

    • Defining specific learning activities based on the defined staff competences for research & innovation, which can be used to acquire these competences, structured as a common curriculum
    • Creating a course aimed at staff and students who are engaged in research & innovation, made up of a set of modular online micro-learning units, each of which will allow participants to master a specific competence relevant to their requirements
  • Compile a report on RDI for PHE, by:

    • Summarising the results of RECAPHE project, including  the structured list of RDI skills and a concise description of the RECAPHE course modules
    • Formulating policy recommendations related to the distinct profile of RDI research with suggestions on  how this profile may be strengthened within institutions, regions, countries and on the European level
