New project: EUROWEB. EUROPE THROUGH TEXTILES: NETWORK FOR AN INTEGRATED AND INTERDISCIPLINARY HUMANITIES, CA 19131

We are proud to inform that the University of Warsaw became the grant holder institution for the COST (European Cooperation in Science Technology) action titled ‘EuroWeb. Europe Through Textiles: Network for an integrated and interdisciplinary Humanities’, CA 19131 (https://www.cost.eu/actions/CA19131/#tabs|Name:overview) in years 2020–2024. Dr Agata Ulanowska from the Faculty of Archaeology is a Chair of the EuroWeb Management Committee.

EuroWeb fosters a pan-European network of scholars and stakeholders from academia, museums, conservation, cultural and creative industries. Scholars from several disciplines of the Humanities (philology, art history, archaeology, history), Social Sciences (social anthropology, ethnology, economics, law) and Natural Sciences (geochemistry, conservation, chemistry, biology) join forces to bridge current cultural, political and geographical gaps and facilitate interdisciplinary research leading to inspirational material for experts in the allied and applied disciplines of fashion, art and design.

The scholarly vision is to re-write European history based on textile massive production, trade, consumption and reuse of textiles and dress. The goal is to identify expertise across time in sustainable textile practices. For this purpose, ITCs are crucial for their experience in ancient techniques and cultural heritage in textile craft. EuroWeb offers multiple theoretical and practical training schools, mentors, targeted career development masterclasses for the ECIs, with the aim to increase EU funding for ITC scholars and ECIs. Each year, EuroWeb aims to host large international textile and dress conferences in the ITCs, to highlight their collections, capacities and scholarship. EuroWeb enables collaborations between researchers, engineers, scholars and other stakeholders and business by providing a platform for them to collaborate, co-create projects and training schools, and foster trust and shared ideas. Deliverables include collaborative publications, research workshops, theoretical reflection and advancement, digital infrastructure, EuroWeb digital Atlas, films and podcasts, and intense mentoring, training and career development for ECIs.

Online Welcome Week

Dear Students!
The new academic year 2020/2021 is ahead of us. For many of you,
it will be the beginning of your student adventure with the Univer-
sity of Warsaw, for others it will be a continuation. This upcoming
academic year will be different for all of us. We all need to face the
challenges of living and studying in a pandemic. Above all, we need
to take on the challenge of maintaining the continuity of high-level
education and academic research.
We can assure you that the Rector’s Team will support you strong-
ly, ensuring optimal conditions for your development not only in
the upcoming academic year. We want online classes to be a useful
supplement to your study process, an opportunity to improve your
competences and expand your knowledge. We would like everyone
to feel good at our University and to be sure that it is the best place
to shape their future.
To guarantee this, we will begin a reform of digital tools used at the
University of Warsaw. We have no doubts that the digitalization of
our University is a process that must accelerate to catch up with cur-
rent standards. We hope that you will also be actively involved in this
process and that the new reality will also reflect your experiences,
expectations and needs.
We encourage you to take advantage of all the opportunities that
studying at the University of Warsaw offers and to actively partici –
pate in the life of our University. We are convinced that the upcom-
ing academic year will bring many opportunities to undertake new
initiatives and develop existing ones.We wish you good studies and constant enthusiasm in achieving your
goals!
With best regards,
Rector and Vice-Rectors
of the University of Warsaw
