Knowledge Exchange

Knowledge exchange activities as part of the DigiPatch project are carried out in cooperation with the Copernicus Science Center


Learning is propelled by curiosity, by our need for cognition. It constantly motivates us to develop our knowledge and gain new experiences. In Copernicus, we utilize both curiosity and the need for learning about the world. We create exhibits and educational programmes that engage people of all ages, personal circumstances, and levels of professional careers.

We also provide a space for cooperation between researchers, educators, scientists, engineers, and experts working on the social engagement of science. In Copernicus, we have been using work methods and experiences from different sectors to create our educational sets, solutions, and exhibits.

The objective of CSC’s work undertaken under the KE component of the DigiPatch project is to develop innovative KE solutions that address the mechanisms involved in the functioning and isolation of narrow social groups on the Internet, and efforts to make their members more open to contacts, relationships, and cooperation with others.

The CSC, along with societal stakeholders in the project – educators involved in formal and informal education (museums, NGOs, cultural institutions, think tanks) – will join forces in the process of developing the DigiPatch research and harnessing the findings by means of:


  1. Knowledge Map: An international team of DigiPatch stakeholders will be established at the Copernicus Science Centre. We will develop and communicate joint positions on the scope, methods, and usefulness of the DigiPatch research. The team’s work will result in a knowledge map that engages a broad group of societal stakeholders.
  2. LivingLab – We will develop an interactive research procedures for our Living Lab space. This exhibits, equipped with appropriate software, will engage visitors in the DigiPatch research process, gathering data. The collected data will be used in research publications, while visitors will learn about the objectives and social significance of the DigiPatch project.
  3. Intervention workshop: The Copernicus Science Centre will hold an international workshop to prototype KE solutions addressing the isolation of narrow social groups on the Internet and promoting openness to contacts and cooperation. The workshop will include representatives from societal stakeholders, including educators, artists, researchers, and social activists from various countries. They will develop prototypes of educational solutions to incorporate research outcomes into educational and social initiatives.
  4. Disseminating KE solutions: Disseminating the DigiPatch KE solutions across Poland and Europe
