The goal of this new platform presented by the Mimesis group is to tackle the need, arising within the humanities, for a new concept of public funded research, supported by a new way of regarding competition among ideas, one where the quality evaluation of the research, innovation, and a better dissemination and exploitation of the research results play a significant role.
To face the challenges of European competition actually means a global growth, learning to deal with different results, to seek innovation, to understand the obscure EU official language, to share methodologies with foreign colleagues, to import and also sometimes export good practices. It means, in other words, learning to exploit one’s own talents and developing a new working philosophy based on the sharing of ideas and the measurement of their impact.
The new EU project planning office refers to all the new budget lines of European 2014-2020 Programs related to the topics of Mimesis’ editorial series and magazines, i. e. Horizon 2020, Erasmus+, Creative Europe, Europe for Citizens, EuropeAid, Rights and Citizenship, Progress and any other programs related to humanities, cultural studies and philosophy.
Mimesis provides partnerships to write and manage EU projects, to launch and suggest ideas, to assess feasibility and effectiveness of project ideas coming from university scholars and their Departments.
