Today DOIT pilots are already in a full swing in different European countries. This time, we want to share a story about a little girl, who hasn’t invented a serious or significant invention so far, but who have made great progress in overcoming her fears and hesitations in the makers’ world.

On December 12th, the county councillor of Salzburg, Andrea Klambauer, visited Salzburg Research and got the opportunity to gain an insight into the work of Salzburg Research and DOIT. In addition to DOITs objectives and goals, the team also presented how the use and impact of the innovation-promoting DOIT program and the various methods are tested and scientifically evaluated in ten European countries. The Salzburg pilot activities were shown to illustrate this work.
DOIT has had the support of experts from various fields since the start of the project. These experts support the DOIT team e.g. as counselors, during activities and disseminations and provide advice and practical support with their specialist knowledge. Together with interested children, they form the Intergenerational Advisory Board (IAB). On November 8th, DOIT had an Advisory Board meeting (online), to discuss the project progress and plan further actions and expert meetings. Read on to get to know our board members!
