As Circular EELISA, we are a pioneering community across EELISA in experiencing EELISA badge and credentials issuance process. Then what is an EELISA badge and how does it work toward a university degree credential? Let’s have a brief look and find out!
EELISA badges are official digital awards granted by EELISA. They are micro-credentials that are collected through activities carried out by EELISA communities. It is an incremental process that requires interested participants to attend multiple EELISA activities in order to collect enough credentials that are later translated to ECTS credits and reflected in their transcripts and degrees.
EELISA badges are a great innovative tool for students and other EELISA activity participants to prove their academic engagement in EELISA!

Circular & SOC Learning (CIRC.LE) Hub
This project commits to empower new generations of professionals working in a circular transition with a socio-civic compromise. To that end, we establish the Circular & SOC Learning (CIRC.LE) Hub; a meeting point for students, professors, transdisciplinary experts, society at large, and decision-makers, working together with a circular and sociocivic compromise. In the Circular & SOC Learning Hub, students reflect on challenges by evaluating social and civic implications and become co-creators and active part of the challenge. This humanizing approach is here considered as the perfect complement to the technical skills for a true application of circularity principles.
Science and Innovation week 2022
ScapeRoom 2022 is the second public activity of the gamification trilogy entitled CIRCULAR IN PLAY, which is the recipient of the first joint Interinstitutional Activities in Communities EELISA fund. The EELISA Circular Community organizes the activity in which teams of students will participate in different challenges in the form of a gymkana, with the aim of arousing curiosity and interest in the Circular Economy and social and civic skills.
October, 2022 -March, 2023
A series of online seminars followed by practical activities in a 3-day workshop in Pisa on the circular economy. Each webinar will be 1 hour and 30 minutes long and will involve a teaching and Q&A session and a final short quiz. Attendance of a webinar is required for an EELISA Discovery badge. Based on quiz performance, attendees will be selected for participation in the face-to-face workshop that will be held in Pisa from 15-17 March 2023 and an EELISA Commitment badge. Participant selection for the webinars and the workshop will be made with balance among EELISA communities and other institutions and countries in mind.
Circular in Play: Online Workshop #1
Circular infographics design workshop #1 was the first of three planned workshops in which the participants collaborated in international and interdisciplinary groups to define a theme, collect data-based evidence, and produce context and messages to convey to the public in the form of an infographic about the circular economy.
Multiple infographics teams worked simultaneously over the course of a week over 2-3 online meetings. Each team consisted of 2-3 interested students, one professor/researcher from a Circular EELISA Community partner university, and one graphic design facilitator who is an undergraduate student in a member university.
Connecting Women – Entrepreneurship and Innovation Towards Sustainability Day, October 4th
This event has as its primordial Connecting Women, which was born in 2021 after the need to unite women researchers with women in industry and reform the gender bias that currently remains. On 2022 it focuses on the efforts being made by companies and startups in the energy sector, guiding their struggle towards decarbonization.
Companies established in the sector with innovation projects of great depth gave some talks, as well as some companies with projects with a lot of arrival as may be the case of Wunder Hexicon.

Science and Innovation week 2021
3VIA is an activity in the framework of the Madrid science and Innovacion Week and the EELISA Aliance that aims at fostering sustainability and responsibility among university members.The proposed event is an international collaboration of three universities under the alliance of EELISA Universities, Istanbul Teknik Universitesi(ITU), Universitatea Politehnica din Bucaresti (UPB), and the Polytechnic University of Madrid in the promise of a fun night of collaborative learning and research.
European Research’s Night 2021
This event was an educational and networking opportunity for college and high school students. The parkour aimed to raise awareness about the circular economy through the completion of three educational challenges (Puzzle!, Defenders of the Earth and Pictionary 3R). Up to 57 participants joined the event and formed groups to solve the proposed challenges and use their creativity to tackle sustainability problems with a Circular economy mentality.
