Its primary mission is to assist ECRs in amplifying social engagement within their research endeavours, enabling them to actively address societal challenges across varied regional ecosystems. Comprising a range of resources, the centre incorporates toolkits – comprising diverse tools tailored to support socially engaged research – a capacity-building structure to enhance competencies and skills, and additional features that foster a seamless connection between science and society.
