Assignment: Research Assistant

This assignment is part of the recruitment process for a Deep Transitions Research Assistant.

Write a report about the MOTION Citizens engagement event targeted at funders and other relevant actors who would like to know about the scope and impact of the event.

  • The main goal of this event was to communicate the results of the MOTION project to a lay audience (citizens) and engage them in a meaningful discussion. The audience is not familiar with MOTION but knows about EIT Climate KIC.
  • The report’s target audience is mainly program officers and policymakers, not academics.
  • The report should discuss the key KPIs and outcomes of the event.
  • The report will be used for accounting and reporting purposes as well as knowledge management; it is, therefore, important to highlight lessons learned.
  • There is no pre-determined outline or structure for the report, please use whatever you think is appropriate.
  • Length: 3-4 pages, it can include tables, images, references (up to 600 worlds excl. tables and images).
