A European University

The 4EU+ Alliance is among the consortia selected for funding in the first pilot ‘European Universities’ call for proposals, launched as part of the 2019 Erasmus+ programme. Out of 54 proposals submitted in response to the call, the European Commission selected 17 European University alliances, which will obtain funding for their projects to become the ‘European Universities’ of the future.

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.
4EU+ Flagship 2 introductory video

“Europe in a changing world: Understanding and engaging societies, economies, cultures and languages” is the title of Flagship 2 programme of the 4EU+ Alliance. In the video, academics and a PhD candidate from different 4EU+ member universities speak about its thematic spectrum, research and education goals. The UW representative, Prof. Anna Wojtyś from the UW Faculty of Modern Languages, the 4EU+ F2 Coordinator, is among them. As the movie is multilingual, therefore turn on the subtitles, please.
