The research activities of UNIcollaboration consist of organizing and promoting events and activities dedicated to:

  • sharing research-related information and expertise
  • strengthening research into online intercultural exchange
  • supporting researchers entering the field

Above all the programme will be determined by UNIcollaboration members, whose input and feedback will enable us to evaluate activities we have organized and plan for the future.  Your views and suggestions are always welcome.
