Call for contributions to urbanHIST Newsletter
The purpose of the urbanHIST Newsletter is to provide a communication platform for the whole project team to share their research experience inside and outside the urbanHIST consortium. It is also a platform for sharing or receiving information and news about urbanHIST project, beneficiaries and project partners. The newsletter provides a great opportunity for early stage researchers (PhD. students) to share their research work, expectations and opinions. Furthermore, the newsletter will also present personal profiles and interviews as well as new or interesting publications, conferences and events. Last but not least, the urbanHIST newsletter welcomes the input from the outside of the consortium and hopes to communicate the project philosophy and findings beyond the primary academic audience.
We are open to new suggestions regarding the contents of the newsletter and your inputs are more than welcome.
We cordially invite you all to contribute to the newsletter.
