Article 1 – Presentation
- European Engineering Learning Innovation and Science Alliance (EELISA), short EELISA, represented by FAU’s department S-Projects, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Schlossplatz 4, 91054 Erlangen, exploits the domain https://community.eelisa.eu (hereafter called “EELISA Community platform”).
- The EELISA Community platform aims at presenting EELISA Communities and their activities. It allows you to propose Community activities via an online form and make them visible to other platform users. Once these activities are approved by EELISA Community administrators, they will be published under the related EELISA Community. If you are interested in participating in activities, you can get in touch with activity providers and community administrators.
Moreover, you can join an EELISA Community by clicking on the “Join now” button and use communication channels by clicking on “Open Discourse”.
To access certain pages and areas in the platform, you have to create an user profile or login with edugain. Any data collected on these occasions will be recorded in our systems.
