In this one-day event, we share the guidelines and best practices for incorporating research and research infrastructures into teaching developed in the UPSKILLS project. The first part of the programme will present the guidelines, whereas the second part will show how they have been implemented in the curricula by the consortium partners. Furthermore, we will address the relationship between research and the industry, and show how typical problems encountered in industry workflows have been integrated into students’ assignments. Finally, we will close the event by demonstrating how the learning content produced in the UPSKILLS project can be reused and integrated into the university curricula.
