Selected projects and research work are offered pro bono, i.e. with no cost for CSOs, NGOs, and private citizens. The number of requests that will be accepted depends on the time and effort that partner organizations can allocate to the activities of the Science Shop.
Civil society organizations and members can contact the NEW ABC Science Shop to express their interest in initiating co-participated research aimed at exploring specific issues or finding solutions to specific societal problems.
The NEW ABC Science Shop will then translate these requests into well-defined research questions. The research project will be supervised by experienced researchers according to the competences and expertise required.
The consortium includes partners from nine different countries, who share a marked and continued interest in the education, psychological development, and social inclusion of young people with an immigrant background. The NEW ABC Science Shop draws upon the expertise of the NEW ABC project partners which include both academic and non-academic partners specialized in: art, education, gender studies, interpreting and translation studies, journalism, law, psychology (cultural-developmental and social psychology), linguistics, migration, multilingual education, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics (sociolinguistics of language and immigration), sociology.
