The Year of Nicolaus Copernicus - World Copernican Congress
Solidarity with Ukraine



The YUFERING project (YUFE TRANSFORMING R&I THROUGH EUROPE-WIDE KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER) was created by 10 partners of the YUFE consortium, within the Science with and for society (Swafs) sub-programme of Horizon 2020. The total budget of the project is 2.000.000 EUR and the sum dedicated to Nicolaus Copernicus University is 100.000 EUR.

YUFERING considers Research and Innovation as one of the strategic areas of the YUFE Alliance. The aim of the YUFERING project is to standardize the research and innovation strategies and practices of the partners in order to achieve, similar to the education area, a unification.

The specific objectives of the project are to:

  • define and implement the YUFE agenda for socially engaged research and innovation.
  • function as a catalyst for the reverse transfer of knowledge and its use in society.
  • to promote the recognition, dissemination and reward of talented individuals and teams of scientists across Europe.
  • make open science the "new normal" by creating the YUFE Open Science Strategy.
  • create and improve joint structures, mechanisms and infrastructures to support research in YUFERING partner units.
  • broaden the impact on the scientific community and society through horizontal activities in the area of socially engaged research and innovation.

In line with this vision, the YUFE alliance in YUFERING will define actions and recommendations for a model system for research and innovation, knowledge transfer and socially engaged science.
