  2. To generate inputs and resources for the NEOLAiA curriculum proposed by the partners.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

LEADER: BIELEFELD UNIVERSITY

A strategic goal of NEOLAiA is to ensure that a positive approach to diversity becomes a trademark of the organisation, as important as excellence in research and teaching.

The consortium will develop a Common Diversity Policy promoting European values with the participation of all the relevant stakeholders.
