CoP Hungary

In fall 2023, Corvinus Science Shop kicked-off the Hungarian LOESS Community of Practice (CoP). LOESS maps, connects and engages with multiple actors in CoPs to provide an overview of the current and desired level of soil-related knowledge in different educational levels and develop teaching programmes and materials. Corvinus Science Shop advocates partnership between the university and society, connects its players in education and research, thus serving the third mission of higher education. The science shop is a supporter of participation and partnership, its main competence is related to the community engaged teaching methodology.


WHO ARE WE? The science shop is embedded in the tertiary education sector and its core, community engaged activity is related to university level. As a result, many of the first members in our national CoP come from universities and community partners. We also reached out to other educational levels and national bodies, and as a consequence the CoP kicked-off with representatives of diverse stakeholders of soil education:
