The BIP is organized as an Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme (BIP). The BIP utilize innovative pedagogical methods through short, intensive programs, combining face-to-face sessions with online learning and collaboration. Completion of both the physical and virtual components is mandatory.

Throughout this BIP, participants will actively cultivate interdisciplinary connections spanning across Aurora Educational Hubs and Universities. They will collaborate on joint projects while refining their communication skills to effectively engage a diverse audience. Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their research findings. Engaging in peer learning sessions with knowledgeable staff, including experts in science communication, will enable participants to share their expertise and receive valuable feedback. Additionally, they will benefit from insights provided by students participating in the parallel BIP, “Rising Voices: Emerging Scholars Forum.”
