A European University

The 4EU+ Alliance, that consists of six well-established research universities, responds to the call of the European Commission regarding the European Universities Initiative. Launched as part of the 2019 Erasmus+ programme call for proposals, the pilot initiative will support a number of European University alliances and is considered a milestone towards the establishment of the European Education Area by 2025.

Collaboration

The 4EU+ mission is to develop a barrier-free and continuously deepening cooperation in education, research and innovation within the Alliance. Through this collaboration and working in partnerships, the Alliance serves society to the highest level with our core values, e.g. academic and research freedom, collaboration in an interdisciplinary approach, integrity, creativity and openness, and internationalisation.

 

More than 100 joint research, education and staff competence development project proposals have been put forward, with the majority of them being rooted in the 4EU+ Flagship Programmes:

  • Health and demographic change in an urban environment;
  • Europe in a changing world: Understanding and engaging societies, economies, cultures and languages;
  • Transforming science and society by advancing information, computation and communication;
  • Biodiversity and sustainable environment.
