Abstract

In this paper authors introduce an ongoing Educational Innovation Project (EIP) that is being carried out at the Faculty of Engineering of Vitoria-Gasteiz (Basque Country University, UPV/EHU, Spain). Since it is interesting from the point of view of universities, research institutes and even traditional companies, the aim of the project is to introduce the scientific culture in the Bachelor’s Degrees of the Faculty. The project has been granted in the call for Educational Innovation Projects 2018–2019 of the Educational Advisory Service, Vicerectorship for Teaching Quality and Innovation. In the paper, the key points of the granted project are explained in order to encourage similar actions, but since it has just started neither practical issues nor experiences can be still reported.
