The network seeks to promote those who strive to link research with educational travel. Here we present in summary initiatives of the partners that comply with promoting participative or citizen research and an active diffusion of acquired knowledge.

There are numerous initiatives in the world that link science and tourism, in which research can be very specialized or for the general public. These initiatives all associate a recreational and educational component, that is, they invite you to travel intelligently, learning and sharing emblematic or very unknown places.

More details of each initiative can be found on the websites of the institutions that lead them.
