CitDig activities relies on the contribution of all staff members, guest speakers, EU and national policy makers, civil servants and academics of areas of expertise other than law. They will study and discuss scientific literature on the matter, taking into account the current EU legal debate and professionals’ experience and insights.
CitDig launches a new electronic repository entitled “UNIO Space”, under which content related to EU law will be made available through various formats that document the interaction between its researchers: #Juniors2Seniors, research coffee, visit to academia, etc. This new platform is associated with the existing “UNIO – EU Law Journal” (https://revistas.uminho.pt/index.php/unio/) and its blog “Thinking & Debating Europe” (https://officialblogofunio.com/about/).
In the format #Juniors2Seniors a young researcher invites two experienced researchers preferably from different scientific areas – in order to pursue an interdisciplinary approach to the issue in question – to engage in a discussion on their research interests in a way young students can discuss their emerging sensitivities with academics of known merit and excellence.
With the “Visit to academia” format CitDig promotes the dialogue between academia, legal professionals and policy makers, fostering the engagement of young students in researching EU law and developing their skills to criticize/improve the produced knowledge.
