VERA (Virtual Ecosystem for Research Activation)
VERA stands for Virtual Ecosystem for Research Activation. It’s an online hub where researchers and “engaged stakeholders” (organizations and community leaders who coordinate directly with local citizens) gather together and co-create participatory research projects within the social sciences and humanities disciplines. On the hub, VERA users create their own profiles to find each other, create project spaces with access to helpful tools for collaboration, and search for funding. VERA was first made public in February 2023 and is being continuously improved in response to community feedback.
VERA is developed through the COESO project, implemented in 2021-2023. The COESO project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 101006325.Go to platform or network
